Meeting your customer service needs

It takes a lot of knowledge to understand the range and depth of services provided by Council.

Our customer support team are at the frontline, fielding countless resident queries, questions and issues every day ranging from the most common about waste collection, to the unusual, such as whether a resident can register their sheep as a pet in their residential home.
