Local Government is the third level of government in Australia and consists of a combination of locally elected Councillors, government employees and community groups. There are 79 Councils in Victoria that operate in accordance with the Local Government Act 2020, providing services and setting regulations to manage local communities.
Recordkeeping responsibilities in local government
In Local Government, the head of a public office is usually the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Council as they are employed by government, rather than being the Mayor or other elected Councillors. The responsibility for records or information management is usually delegated across the Council using position descriptions, contracts, agreements and work plans.
