Council resources to help lower the cost of living

We understand that the cost of living has become a significant concern for families across Australia. Over the past few years, fluctuations in the economy, inflation and various other factors have contributed to the rising costs of essential goods and services.  

Council can be your ally in cutting down on some of these living expenses, thanks to our array of free or low-cost services and facilities. We've compiled a list to help you make the most of these valuable services and facilities around the City of Logan.
