YARRIAMBIACK Shire Council's practices are being reviewed by a local government integrity agency.
The Local Government Inspectorate released a statement on Monday confirming the investigation.
"As part of this work, we are calling for the local community to assist by sharing their experiences of shire council depot services in recent years," the statement read.
"Inspectorate staff attended at the Hopetoun council depot recently to follow up on issues raised during the examination.
"Following that attendance, LGI staff now want to hear from any community members who have hired or borrowed machinery or been provided with any services from Yarriambiack Shire Council depots in recent years, either for personal or business related purposes.
"Some of those services may have included road grading, use of council machinery or vehicles or sale of chemicals."
Municipal acting chief inspector Ross Millard said the council was assisting with enquiries.
"I encourage anyone in the community to come forward with information which they believe may assist our investigation," he said.
"Our objective is to identify any concerning or illegal activity in order to protect the integrity and transparency of the council for the local community."
He said people could respond anonymously.
Yarriambiack council chief executive Jessie Holmes said council wouldn't be providing comment on the issue.
