About Customer Service

The Shire’s activities and services are diverse and include property, economic, human, recreational and cultural services. Infrastructure maintained includes roads, bridges, drains, shire buildings, recreation facilities, parks, gardens and reserves. 

The Shire administers State and Local Laws relating to land use planning, environment protection, public health, traffic and parking, and animal management.  

Access to interpreters, translators and other communication aids are available to assist customers where necessary.

Initially, please discuss the matter with a customer service officer. If the issue is not then resolved to your satisfaction, it will be referred to the appropriate department manager for their attention. If the issue still remains unresolved, you are invited to register a formal complaint.
