The Hills has been successful in receiving just over $11 million for pothole road repairs.
This funding will greatly assist. I thank residents for the ongoing patience with the repairs as council work through this and for continuing to report issues to council. Works are now occurring on Sackville Ferry Rd to repair the surface near the Ferry and the Cliftonville Rd repairs are well underway. Flood repairs and recovery works are still ongoing. I have been working closely with residents to resolve some long standing issues and I look forward to having some of these closed out soon. Council has been successful in receiving an additional $6.6 million in west invest funding for a number of projects. This is in addition to the $15 million already received for the proposed indoor recreation centre at Horseworld and flood warning systems. The competitive round has also seen funding for a new autism specific school for The Hills District at Box Hill.
The consultation period is currently underway for the proposed Mason Rd Reserve at Box Hill. Please have your say. As always, Council continue to work hard to deliver parks in Box Hill as quickly as possible. Until next time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
