Electoral Representation Review

Support 10 single-councillor wards

The Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) is reviewing the future structure of Boroondara’s electoral representation.

The VEC review will consider:

  • whether Boroondara has the appropriate number of councillors
  • whether Boroondara should remain subdivided into wards, or be unsubdivided
  • if subdivided, the number of wards, ward boundaries and the number of councillors per ward

Your participation in the review will strongly influence the future of our electoral structure. Your input is being sought via a process of public submissions. 

Send your submission by 5pm Wednesday 8 May 2019 via:

Register your cat or dog online

Any cat or dog over three months old needs to be registered with the municipality in which they are kept.

You can now conveniently register your pet through our website.

We’ll ask you to submit the microchipping certificate - which is compulsory. The registration fee for a desexed animal is substantially lower than for an animal that is not desexed. To be eligible, you need to upload a copy of the desexing certificate.

You also have the option to pay the registration fee online using a credit card. Once you have paid you’ll get a lifetime tag for your pet’s collar, for easy identification.

See Register your pet or call our Customer Service team on 9278 4444 if you require any support.

 

Avoid waste in the first place

As a community, one of the simplest ways to reduce our overall waste is to avoid creating waste from the start. Cutting the amount of waste we produce doesn’t need to be hard work.

Why not set a challenge for your family to start shopping smarter today? Plan ahead, write a list, buy only what you need, avoid packaging and single-use items, buy products with recycled content… and keep a scoreboard at home to see who produces the least waste. Have some fun with it!

Visit Recycling top tips for more useful tips on how to reduce items in your recycling bin. 

Pay your rates online

Did you know you can pay your rates conveniently and securely online via our website?

If you’re paying in four equal instalments, your fourth payment is due Friday 31 May 2019.

All payment methods are detailed on your rates notice and on our website. Call 9278 4444 for more information.
