About Council

Yass Valley Council is made up of nine elected Councillors. Elections are held every four years to determine the Councillors who will represent the people of Yass Valley. 

A Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected by the Councillors every two years.  Day to day operations are managed by the CEO and three Directors.

The Council:

  • Provides services and infrastructure, such as roads, rubbish, water and waste.
  • Adds value to our lifestyle by enhancing the character and culture of our unique Valley.
  • Grows our economy by supporting local businesses and attracting visitors and new residents to our area.
  • Protects our green environment, making sure future generations get to use it and enjoy a clean, safe place to live.

  • Makes sure facilities and amenities are there for all - pathways, pools, sports facilities, halls and public spaces.
  • Ensures sound financial decision-making to keep Yass Valley one of the most 'affordable' regions to live in.
  • Works in many ways with residents, individuals, groups and areas of the Valley, to discuss and consult on everyone's needs and aspirations.
