Can't find the information you are looking for?

Contact Council on 6393 5300 or mail@mvc.tas.gov.au and let us know what information you are looking for.

Staff will provide you with information wherever possible by request, or provide advice to you about the timing, location and availability of routinely disclosed information from Council and related agencies.

As a last resort, customers have the right to submit a formal request for information under the Right to Information Act 2009 using the form below:

Application Form for Assessed Disclosure (Right to Information request)

Note: formal assessment procedures required under the Act can slow our response times.

There is no form or charge involved with a standard customer service request of this nature.
