Yarra Council has joined Twitter so we now have another way of communicating with our community. We’ll be tweeting regularly about local issues, Council services and upcoming events.

Council has a Twitter feed that covers general Council matters, as well as separate Twitter feeds for our libraries and leisure centres.
