Our role in the community

AlburyCity is the facilitator of a thriving, resilient and liveable city full of opportunities and the custodians of an environment like no other.

We consistently deliver best-in-class leadership, services, facilities and experiences to ensure Albury is a great place to live, work and invest, today and into the future.

We are planning and preparing for our growing community; investing in infrastructure, actively attracting new and diverse businesses and ensuring that our cultural, sporting, leisure and nature experiences surpass expectations.

We serve a diverse range of people from residents to community groups, industry and business and work closely with other councils and government bodies.

We employ 480 committed and highly skilled people, our annual budget is $136M and we are currently investing $48M a year in capital works.

We are recognised as leaders in waste management and recycling, and our traineeship program is seen as a model for local government across Australia.

Our organisation is a regional leader dedicated to partnering with other Councils, all levels of government, stakeholders, organisations and community groups on issues affecting our region. We are one of 11 member Councils in the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation (RAMJO) and one of 15 Councils participating in Regional Cities NSW.

Our most recent Employee Opinion Survey shows a high level of satisfaction from our people, with more than 84% saying AlburyCity is a good place to work. You can hear more from our people about why they love working for us.
