What is Local Government


Auburn City Council is the local government agency that provides all the vital day to day services for the people of Auburn.

Council is responsible for all the things that impact on your daily lives - garbage collection, local roads, footpaths, parks, sporting ovals and pools, libraries, childcare, youth services, social and town planning and the local environment.

Importantly, Councils also regulate all building permissions in their areas - when you want to build or extend your house, your first stop is at Council.

Council's plan for the future of your area - our planners analyse the projected population growth for the area and plan services such as roads, parks, sporting and cultural facilities to meet the needs of our growing population.

The General Manager is responsible for the efficient and effective operation of the Council's organisation and for ensuring the implementation of decisions of the Council.

The Mayor and the Councillors perform important civic and electoral duties in our community, hosting visiting dignitaries, attending events, listening to the community's concerns, and assessing and advising council management on setting the direction and controlling the affairs of the Council.

Councils are the ultimate form of democracy - local people elected by their neighbours to run their community.
