We all love Albany. It’s our home, it’s part of the family and it’s a big family.
The City of Albany and its Mayor, councillors and staff are part of that family too. Our people are passionate. They love their work and they care about their community.
They fight fires. They make sandwiches for junior footballers. They drive ambulances. They are swimming coaches. They are Bushcarers. They are Girl Guide leaders. They count birds and possums. They rescue injured turtles.
They also work hard in their jobs to make your city a place you can be proud to call home.
We have 38,000 residents with a diverse range of needs and expectations and it’s our job to deliver these for the community.
You know we build and fix roads. You know we manage and maintain public facilities like Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre. But there is a lot we do that you may be surprised is the responsibility of your local government.
Recycling, firefighting, lawn mowing, community events, rehoming lost pets, planting trees and much, much more are all services we provide to the community.
These wide ranging services and facilities help create a community with a quality of life that makes your city a great place to live.
This is Your City and we want to introduce you to some of the people who are part of Albany's big family and what they do for your community.
You can learn more about our people, their passions, and the work they do by liking the City of Albany News & Events Facebook page or downloading the free City of Albany App.
Each fortnight over the next year we will be releasing a short video showing you more about 'Your City'.
More to 'Your City' than meets the eye
A lot happens at the City of Albany. Like rehoming or reuniting 480 pets last financial year, planting 2,523 trees and maintaining another 8,700 street trees, mowing 30,000km of lawn, providing 2003 man hours responding to fires, or collecting 1,270,880 bins – that’s a lot of bins. This is just a snapshot of what we do for our community.
