The Federal Government announced a new Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI) earlier this year.
This program is designed to support councils deliver priority infrastructure projects to support jobs and help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said Kyogle Council received over $1 million as part of the funding allocation.
“$78,000 has been allocated to install a new barbecue at skate park shelter, new lighting for park facilities and a shade sail over the playground,” Mr Hogan said.
“These upgrades will make it more attractive for visitors to Kyogle. This means more customers for our local businesses.”
“Anzac Park already has a skate park, a BMX track, outdoor gym, basketball and netball courts, it is a great community space.”
Kyogle Council Mayor Danielle Mulholland said the grant was great news for our youth.
“These funds from the Federal Government has allowed Council to tick off another community-identified priority project,” Cr Mulholland said.
“I’d like to recognise Kevin Hogan’s efforts in listening to our concerns and making representations for us to ensure we received this funding.”
“The funding of these projects will give communities a much-needed boost, particularly in terms of their resilience after being subject to bushfires, drought, flood and COVID-19.”
