Council Frequencies & Information

Post by RF-Bot »

At first it may seem a little boring or uninteresting to listen to your local Council, after all what could be interesting about that?

Well you may hear quite a few things going on, especially if there has been something like a major storm hit your area. Councils are responsible for clearing road ways when a storm has passed through, removing trees from across roads or bridges, unclogging pipes or drains, and lending general assistance to other emergency services in such times of storms or major disasters - for example fire and flood.

Councils are also responsible for maintaining everyday things like walk ways, parks, recreation areas, beaches, roads, removing trees, beautification of areas (gardens) and many other things that we may not be aware of.

Some Councils rely heavily on radio usage to maintain their fleet of workers; you may hear all sorts of things going on in your area by members of your local Council - and while it may not always be interesting, there could be times where it will be, and it pays to have your local Council frequency programmed in, especially in times of stormy weather.

Below is a list of "known" frequencies licensed to the respective Councils in Tasmania. Every attempt is made to update this list as often as is possible, based on local knowledge, public contributions and of course verifiable data sources, however we really encourage members of the public to submit any additions or corrections to any of the information where possible - so if you know of something then please share it with us.

Previously, local Councils have had the responsibility over Water and Sewerage; this has changed in Tasmania with the formation of one main water authority, Tas Water. Where possible, we have separated frequencies accordingly. Again, we ask for member feedback for additions and alterations on any part of this list.

Council frequencies will be listed alphabetically via Municipality.
