History & Amalgamation

'Leading, engaging and supporting strong and vibrant communities'

Snowy Valleys Council was established on 12 May 2016 following the amalgamation of the Tumbarumba Shire Council and the Tumut Shire Council. 

Our highest priority as a new council is to ensure we continue to deliver the many local services valued by our communities, whilst considering ways to provide improvements.

Drawing on the strengths of our former councils, the talent of our staff and their experiences, we have a solid foundation for building a dynamic and successful council that will serve the needs of the communities of the Snowy Valleys now and into the future.
