The Honiara City Council provides a range of services, to support our capital city, our largest city and the administrative, political and economic centre of the Solomon Islands.
The Council's income is key for this, as the funding for all these services comes from you, via Basic Rates, Property Rates, Business Licenses, Liquor Licenses, Market Revenue and other revenue sources.Many of these services are entirely funded by the City Council, but other services are co-funded with National Government Ministries, or done with support from donor agencies.These services are all implemented through our ten Divisions which you can read about here.
