Council's finances must be prepared in accordance with the Local Government Act 1995, Accounting Standard AAS-27 and Financial Management Regulations.

Financial tasks involve the co-ordinating, planning and control of all monetary matters as they affect Council. This is achieved through the preparation of the Annual Budget and the production of monthly, quarterly and annual financial statements which are presented to Council at Ordinary Meetings open to the public.

A full range of organisational financial activities is undertaken which includes payroll, all payments and collection of income from rates, grants and charges.
