Shire chief executive officer Peter Brooks said the Northern Grampians dropped only one point in one category - waste management - which this year received a satisfaction rating of 72 out of 100 compared with 73 last year.
Mr Brooks said the community's satisfaction with the council rose in categories including local roads and footpaths, recreational facilities, the appearance of public areas, the enforcement of by-laws, economic development and town planning policy and approvals.
"The staff of Northern Grampians Shire should be proud of the results as it really reflects the work and dedication they contribute to the organisation," he said.
Mr Brooks said this was an excellent improvement for a small rural shire and was one he was sure the organisation would improve on next year.

Shire CEO Peter Brooks.
Shire loses CEOTuesday, 25 May 2004
Northern Grampians Shire Council will be without its chief executive officer Peter Brooks from June, with Mr Brooks having announced his resignation.
Mr Brooks tendered his resignation to council last Thursday night, announcing that he would be moving to Griffith in New South Wales.
He has accepted a position as General Manager (chief executive officer) with Griffith City Council in south central New South Wales.His final day at the Northern Grampians Shire Council will be June 18.
Mr Brooks said he had enjoyed the challenges and achievements during his four and a half years with the council and would miss the professionalism, dedication and support of shire staff.
Mayor Karen Douglas said Mr Brooks had achieved a lot during his four and a half years at Northern Grampians, taking the council from an organisation plagued by serious financial problems to the viable and well-run council it is today.
Cr Douglas said Mr Brooks had been thrown many large challenges during his time at Northern Grampians, including the proposed mining of Big Hill, the Stawell Main Street revitalisation project and the St Arnaud secession issue.
"The councillors and staff wish Peter all the very best in his endeavours and thank him for his hard work and dedication to Northern Grampians Shire," Cr Douglas said.
"Peter has helped restructure the organisation and he has turned the financial situation of the council around, and he has overseen enormous changes and improvements during his time with us."
Cr Douglas said the council greatly appreciated Mr Brooks' initiative in establishing the Economic Development and Planning Unit and his passion and enthusiasm for improving telecommunications through the shire.
"He will be greatly missed from the community of St Arnaud," she said.
Mr Brooks started at Northern Grampians Shire Council in January 2000, just as the proposed mining of Big Hill in Stawell had become an issue.
His contract with the council was due to expire in January next year and he had been approached by his new employer.
Cr Douglas said she and her fellow councillors were sorry Mr Brooks was leaving the council, but congratulated him on his new appointment with Griffith.
She said the council would now look forward and would start the process of appointing an Acting CEO and undertake the recruitment of a permanent replacement for Mr Brooks.
Mr Brooks said he was proud of a number of his achievements including the Central Park upgrade, the revitalisation of Main Street, Stawell, the St Arnaud Children's Precinct and the establishment of eight local town committees that work with council to advance their communities.
Mr Brooks also identified a major improvement in the role council takes in Economic Development, with the adoption of an Economic Development Strategy and a structure that combines planning with economic development.
He said that the long running and bitter issue of the St Arnaud library had been a disappointment.
"I would love to see building start on the St Arnaud Library extension before I leave," he said.
