Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) extends its thanks to all residents who attended the drought relief consultative workshops held to gain community input into the question of how up to $1 million of possible Federal funding can be best invested to provide jobs, keep money flowing through local shops and suppliers and support drought relief activities. Council is encouraging people who couldn’t make one of the meetings to have their say via a quick on line questionnaire at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LPSCweneedyourideasdroughtrelief up until 16 November.
“I think many people who attended meetings were quite surprised at the conditions attached to gaining it. We must put forward projects that aren’t in Council’s budget or forward plans. If we are successful we have to mobilise a local workforce and equipment to complete projects by June 2019. It is a real challenge and one where power of community must be activated if we are to gain the desired outcomes. Thus, the importance of as many people as possible providing their input to the process,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“Copies of the questionnaire are also available at Council’s Administration Centre, the libraries, the Willow Tree VIC, firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 6746 1755,” Councillor Hope concluded.
