Kev’s parting gift

A WEEK before being overturned as prime minister, Kevin Rudd announced that additional funding of $100 million would be made available to local councils as the third round of the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP). Some $89,000 has been allocated to the Derwent Valley Council on the condition that it meet certain criteria and lodge a suitable application by the end of July.

Mr Rudd said this money would help councils to build and modernise community facilities including town halls, libraries, community centres, sports grounds and environmental infrastructure and is aimed at strengthening our communities during the economic recovery by supporting local jobs and provide long-term benefits to communities by renewing and upgrading local infrastructure.

Ideas for suitable projects can be sent to general manager Stephen Mackey at the Derwent Valley Council office, or by posting a comment to this blog or emailing Councillor Damian Bester at keepdamohonest@gmail.com
