Public Health 

Active involvement by local authorities in environmental and public health issues has achieved massive improvements in the quality of life and longevity of most Australians. 

The duties and powers of the Public Health Unit within local governments are widespread and involve dealing with infectious diseases, water sampling, food sampling, food inspections, sewerage septic tank and effluent disposal and pest control.

The Public Health Unit's role is to measure and control environmental factors relating to human health, by planning the necessary monitoring, surveillance and inspection programs throughout the Shire and to enforce them whenever necessary.
