Flinders Council provides more than the ‘three R’s’ – rates, roads and rubbish. Council is involved in delivering a wide range of legislated and non-legislated services and initiatives: community and economic development, tourism, natural resource management, and promoting the health and general wellbeing of the Furneaux Region community and its environment.
Council provides many services and facilities to enhance the quality of life of local residents and, where possible, to add value to their properties, businesses and investments. Council must also ensure that the standard of services provided are financially and operationally sustainable over both the short and long-terms, and are appropriate to the needs and desires of the community it serves.
Flinders Council includes the communities within the Furneaux Group and the islands of eastern Bass Strait up to the Victorian border, including the Hogans Group and the Deal Island Group.
