Council is a key player in the local business economy in a number of ways and provides in excess of eighty services to residents and visitors, including:

  • Infrastructure development

  • Provision of community services

  • Project development approval processes

  • Point of reference for business and community issues

In undertaking these activities which are part of Council’s fundamental obligations, Council is influencing the way in which the local economy develops and through a strong commitment to best practice and efficiency, plays a leadership role that sets an example to other parties in the community.

Part of that leadership role is to develop and promote a vision for economic development within Yarriambiack Shire and across the Wimmera Mallee Region.
