Back in 1994 the then Victorian State Government amalgamated local councils across Victoria and this technically came into being late in that year. The result was that councils became bigger in their physical size but also nearly all had their names changed. So those who lived in Werribee are no longer receiving their services or paying their rates to the City of Werribee. From late 1994 their rates were now collected for the City Of Wyndham. That was just one of the name changes.
