Hobsons Bay City Council delivers over 100 services including waste collection services, services for families, people with a disability and older residents. Council also provides economic development support for local businesses, maintains over 250 parks, gardens and open spaces across the city, infrastructure along the city's foreshore and over 50 facilities to provide recreation, leisure, and learning opportunities across Hobsons Bay.
