Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $263,990 for three new projects in our community.
“This funding is designed to support councils to create jobs and help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Hogan said.
“Kyogle Preschool will receive $100,000 to paint their building inside and out, repair drainage, and install new fence to meet required height.”
“$60,000 will go to the Kyogle Visitor Information Centre to repair cracks, paint, install gutter guard, replace and upgrade air con, remove old office wall and relocate counter to expand available space.”
“There will also be $103,990 for Kyogle Memorial Institute Hall to improve Supper Room acoustics and audio visual systems to allow for meetings, and paint the hall interior.”
Kyogle Council Mayor Danielle Mulholland welcomed the funding and said it will be a great boost for the region.
“We can be very proud of what we have achieved in partnership with the Federal Government,” Cr Mulholland said.
“It’s wonderful to see what we can achieve through productive and collaborative relationships – not only with our Federal Member Kevin Hogan who does a great job of advocating for us, but also with the communities in our council area who let us know what they want or need.”
“These are three important community facilities and it will be fantastic to see them upgraded.”
This funding has been provided through the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI) announced last year.
