The organisation, although known as the City of Melbourne, is officially titled the Melbourne City Council and is one of 79 municipalities in Victoria operating as a public statutory body incorporated under the Local Government Act 1989 (Vic).
As a local government authority, the City of Melbourne strives to achieve the community’s vision of Melbourne as a bold, inspirational and sustainable city, as outlined in the Future Melbourne Community Plan, the organisation’s 10-year plan to make Melbourne a great place for people to live, work and visit.
