The following extended table presents only a selected list of expenses split by function. While all local government expenses could be attributed to a specific function, Measuring Council Performance in Tasmania, from which the data in this table is sourced, does not publish this level of detail.

In 2002-03, of the selected expenses split by function in this table, governance was the highest area of expense for Tasmanian local government councils (at 16.2% of functions shown). Expenditure on governance was the highest proportion of total expenses for Latrobe (36.3% of functions shown).

Other high areas of expense for Tasmanian local governments were roads, footpaths and traffic (accounting for 15.2% of functions shown) and water systems (14.4% of functions shown).
