The Huon Valley Residents & Ratepayers Association (Inc) was formed in October 2016 as a direct response to the sacking of the Huon Valley Council (HVC) by the State Government. It is perhaps unfortunate that there was not a similar organisation already active that might have been able to help prevent council from becoming dysfunctional.

We are non-partisan and have no affiliation with any political grouping or party and welcome members with any political philosophy (or none!). The more diversity the better. However, if you are thinking of joining please consider our “objects and purposes” and only apply to join the association if you are supportive of them.

As stated in our constitution our “objects and purposes” are to monitor and promote:

  • good governance of the Huon Valley municipality
  • transparency and accountability in all decision-making and dealings undertaken by HVC
  • efficiency in all activities of HVC
  • timely and effective community consultation by HVC whenever appropriate

and to:

  • Communicate information about, and promote awareness of HVC governance issues to the Huon Valley community
  • Advocate on behalf of residents and ratepayers with HVC
