Victoria’s local government sector is made up of 79 councils, 10 regional library corporations and 16 associated entities.
This report outlines the results of, and observations arising from, our financial audits of the entities within the sector, and our observations, for the year ended 30 June 2017. We also comment on the outcomes of our audits of the 79 council performance reports.
We also assess the sector’s financial performance during the 2016–17 reporting period and its financial sustainability as at 30 June 2017. Further, we considered the short and longer team impact of rate-capping on the local government sector.
