Council - A Part of Your Everyday
Imagine your every day without street lighting, rubbish collection, or the maintenance of pavements, roadways, street trees and verges.
Imagine no playgrounds or local parks, libraries, sports club facilities, community halls or seniors’ services.
What would life be like without food inspections at local restaurants, rescue of stray animals, or provision of volunteer support programs?
Councils are about more than roads and rubbish collection. They’re responsible for delivering hundreds of services and facilities that contribute to building strong and vibrant communities. As part of these services, councils in South Australia look after about $22 billion of public assets.
A snapshot of the services and facilities provided by South Australian councils includes:
│ street lighting │ arts and culture programs │bushfire prevention │ parking facilities │ cemeteries │ coastal care initiatives │ community buses │ community centres │ parklands │ development and planning services │ dog and cat management │ disability services │ economic development initiatives │ environmental programs │ events │ footpath maintenance │ heritage activities │ immunisation clinics │ libraries │ museums │ roads and cycling facilities │ men’s sheds │ footy and soccer ovals │ netball and tennis courts │ aged care services │ playgrounds │ public pools │ recycling facilities │ skate parks │ stormwater drains│
