Council delivers many services predominantly funded through the collection of rates. These services fall into three main areas:
- looking after essential infrastructure such as roads, drains, parks and footpaths
- looking after the environment, including managing waste and cutting pollution
- looking after people in areas such as health, childcare and youth services.
Hornsby Shire Council has the special responsibility to conserve the unique character of this beautiful area while meeting the needs of residents today and in years to come. The challenge is to maintain a careful balance between the pressure of development and conserving the natural features of our Bushland Shire, combining heritage and innovation for a sustainable future.
