Horsham council shows improved performance

Victorian Minister for Local Government, Melissa Horne, today announced she had received the final municipal monitor report into Horsham Rural City Council.

“I acknowledge the extensive work completed by municipal monitor, Jude Holt, in helping the council transition back to good governance, processes and practices over the past six months,” said Ms Horne.

She said the findings highlight improvements in Horsham Rural City Council’s performance, with the final report recommending no further intervention beyond one recommendation.

Ms Holt recommended the council invest in a Community Leadership Program to support potential candidates at the 2024 local government election – this has been accepted by Horsham Rural City Council.

“Thanks to Ms Holt’s work, and the co-operative manner in which the council worked with the monitor, the council is in a position to provide strong, well-informed leadership for the advancement of the community,” the Minister said.

The report is available at localgovernment.vic.gov.au/council-governance/independent-reports.

The report will soon be available to read here.
