18 November 2020 - Changes to Council Services
In response to the new directives announced by the Police Commissioner on 18 November 2020 a significant range of restrictions will come into place from midnight.
Local Government provides many essential services for communities. We are required to continue to deliver these services, where it is safe for both our staff and community.
The City of Victor Harbor will be implementing changes to services that are not essential. These changes will come into place from midnight 19 November 2020 until otherwise advised:
