Financial Health Indicator


The Financial Health Indicator (FHI) is a measurement of a local government’s overall financial health. It is calculated from the seven financial ratios that local governments are required to calculate annually. An FHI result of 70 and above indicates sound financial health. The maximum result achievable is 100. The FHI is one factor to consider in assessing overall performance. Other factors include: the range of services offered; efficiency of services delivered; and community satisfaction. A very high or low FHI may be a prompt for questions to be asked by the community about a local government’s revenue, expenses and service delivery. The FHI is best viewed as a trend over time. When interpreting FHI data on the radar charts below, a larger rounder shape is better than a smaller shape. Ratio results that are closer to the centre indicate areas where attention may be required and improvement can be made. Find out more information about the FHI methodology (DOCX 1.4MB).

Financial Ratios

Under Western Australian legislation, local governments are required to report seven financial ratios. For each ratio, a standard has been set as a benchmark for councils to achieve. The ratios provide a measure of the financial sustainability of local governments and are reported by local governments across Australia. MyCouncil presents ratios starting from the 2011-12 financial year. The requirement for local governments to report their asset consumption ratio and asset renewal funding ratio was introduced in 2012-13. Therefore, asset consumption ratio and asset renewal funding ratio data may not be available before 2012-13.

Operating Revenue


A local government’s revenue comprises all sources of money that contribute to its operating budget. Local governments in Western Australia generate revenue from rates, fees and charges for services, and grants from the State and Commonwealth governments. In some cases, local governments also receive funding through property-developer contributions and sales of assets and property.

About this chart

Rates

Rates are a tax on property levied by local governments to fund their activities. The amount of money to come from rates is the shortfall between a local government’s planned expenditure and all other income it receives, including from local government grants.

The Local Government Act 1995 and the Valuation of Land Act 1978 sets out the methods for assessing the rateable value of property and the types of rates which can be levied. Each local government determines a rate in the dollar which is multiplied by the value of the property determined by the Valuer-General.

Operating Grants, Subsidies and Contributions

Each local government in Western Australia receives grants to supplement its other revenue. This includes Financial Assistance Grants from the Commonwealth Government. This money is allocated and distributed to local governments by the WA Local Government Grants Commission.

DATA SOURCE: Western Australian Local Government Grants Commission

Fees and Charges

Most local governments receive income from fees and charges. Examples of when a local government can impose a fee or charge include:

  • the use of, or admission to, facilities owned, managed or maintained by the local government
  • the supply of a service or work at a person’s request
  • the supply of goods
  • provision of information from records
  • receiving an application for approval, making an inspection or issuing a licence or permit.

To meet the cost of providing a special service, a local government can also impose a service charge on owners or occupiers of land who benefit from the service. A common example of a service charge is to meet the cost of installing underground power.

Other Revenue

All revenue from sources not contained in the other categories. This may include (but is not limited to) donations received, fines collected or profits from the sale of assets.

Cash Reserves


Local governments are permitted to set aside money to be used for designated purposes in a future financial year. Reserve accounts may be created for future asset upgrades or replacements, employee costs, specific projects or a number of other initiatives.

DATA SOURCE: Local government Annual Financial Report

Operating Expenditure by Program


Under the Local Government Act 1995, councils must vote to accept an annual budget that sets out the local government’s spending priorities. A local government’s annual budget is informed by its Strategic Community Plan which is developed with the community. Engaging with the community enables a local government to be responsive to community needs and ensures that expenditure and prioritisation of public funds is in line with community expectations. The Local Government (Financial Management) Regulations 1996 specify 11 broad program areas that local governments are to use when reporting expenditure. These program areas are defined below.

Rate Growth


Rates are a tax on property levied by local governments to fund the shortfall between their planned expenditure and all other income they receive, including from local government grants. The Local Government Act 1995 and the Valuation of Land Act 1978 prescribe the methods for assessing the rateable value of property and the types of rates which can be levied. Each local government determines a rate in the dollar which is multiplied by the assigned value of the property. Rate revenue includes general rates, differential rates, specific area rates, minimum rates, interim rates, back rates, ex-gratia rates - less discounts offered. This does not include administration fees, interest on instalments, and interest on arrears or service charges.

WASTE COLLECTION SERVICE AND RECOVERY RATES


Western Australian local governments provide a range of waste and recycling services to their residents. Reported below are waste and recycling services that are provided directly to households, which include kerbside bin collections and vergeside collections for bulky items. Recovery rates for each service type show the percentage of materials recovered from the total amount of waste collected through the service for the selected year. Recovery rates depend on a range of factors including the degree to which waste is separated at the household (e.g. the number of bins) and the capacity and efficiency of the recycling facilities where recyclable materials are delivered.

DATA SOURCE: Data are voluntarily reported by local governments to the annual Census of Western Australian Local Government Waste and Recycling Services. The accuracy of the reported data is not independently verified.

* Indicates waste collection services are not provided.

About this table

Percentage of the weight of materials recovered from the total weight of waste collected for the selected year.

All services

All waste and recycling services provided directly to households, which include kerbside bin collections and vergeside collections for bulk waste and garden organics.

Kerbside services

Kerbside services are containerised, regular services where waste or recycling are collected from the kerb in front of premises. Typical kerbside services can include a red topped bin for mixed waste (garbage) for disposal, a yellow topped bin for dry mixed recyclables and a lime green topped bin for garden organics and/or food waste.

Kerbside general waste to landfill

A regular, containerised service where mixed waste (garbage) is collected and transported directly or via a transfer station to landfill. Typically the container is a “wheelie bin” with a red or dark green lid.

Kerbside general waste to AWT

A regular, containerised service where mixed waste (garbage) is collected and processed in an Alternative Waste Technology (AWT) facility, which are also referred to as Resource Recovery Facilities.

Kerbside co-mingled recycling
