Loddon residents have their say
Published on 12 July 2018
Residents in the Loddon Shire Council have rated Council’s advocacy efforts as comparable to the state-wide average in the annual community report card.
With a score of 54, Council’s lobbying on behalf of the community is equal to the average for councils state-wide and above the average for small rural councils (score of 53). Council also performed above the small rural council average on sealed local roads with a score of 50 compared to 49.
The survey, conducted by Key Research, collected responses from 460 residents in Loddon on a range of council services.
The top five performing areas according to residents are weekly rubbish collection, fortnightly recycling collection, immunisation, kindergarten/pre-schools and playgrounds.
The survey also revealed that more work needs to be done to improve resident’s perception of Council’s financial management, leadership and regulatory services.
