Have your say on the 2022/23 Local Infrastructure Program
Council is excited to announce that it has endorsed the Draft 2022/23 Operational Plan for public exhibition. The plan details Council’s program of works, identifying transport, water & sewer, community and economic development initiatives designed to encourage growth and development across the LGA.
In a time when there is uncertainty about the future, Council’s Operational Plan looks to benefit the whole local government area. As we move forward, we will be innovative and efficient to ensure the delivery of the plan. As a result, we will continue to take advantage of government funding to develop programs which will ensure we can value add to programs identified within the four-year Delivery Program.
Growth in the overall workforce has been contained despite the number of capital projects increasing in recent years. This has resulted in tough decisions being made with only critical projects and new positions required to implement the plan being included.
Some of the key projects for 2022/23 include:
- $5.288m to complete the Cullen Bullen Sewerage Scheme
- $4.6m for replacement of the 3 wooden bridges on Glen Davis Road
- $1.2m for Main Street Footpath Renewal as part of the CBD Revitalisation Program.
- $350k to upgrade the Civic Ballroom for use as an evacuation facility.
- $200k for the installation of solar panels at the JM Robson Aquatic Centre.
- $300k for the installation of trunk main infrastructure to Portland Foundations.
