The Councils in Focus website provides a snapshot of South Australia’s local government sector.
You can search for your local council and access a range of information related to:
- how councils receive revenue — what rates they charge, what grants they receive and other sources of funding
- what councils spend their money on — key services such as roads, libraries, waste management and other functions
- each council’s financial position and performance.
The website shows this information over a 5 year period so you can see how your council's revenue and expenditure has changed over time and in comparison to similar councils and the State average.
