Have your say on council spending

SOUTH Gippsland Shire Council is asking residents of Foster, Korumburra, Mirboo North and Venus Bay to have their say on how an additional $400,000 is spent on capital works in each town for the 2017-18 financial year.

People have the opportunity to participate in an online forum where they can vote on projects identified from their community plan and the Long Term Capital Works Program or provide their own ideas.

The forums are part of the Community Capital Works Allocation project and will remain open until September 21.

Mayor Cr Bob Newton said the Community Capital Works Allocation project will provide council with ideas to consider when allocating funds to capital works in each community.

“We are encouraging everyone to be involved in the project so council can be adequately informed of the priority project each community identifies for Foster, Korumburra, Mirboo North and Venus Bay,” he said.

“Participants should start voting and posting any new ideas as soon as possible as it provides everyone with more time to make comments and provide their support to ideas that align with their own values.

“Council is working with our community to meet its dynamic needs and we believe the Community Capital Works Allocation Project will assist with this.”

People wishing to be involved with the forums can visit council’s website www.southgippsland.vic.gov.au/communitycapitalworks or check for updates on council’s Facebook page.

Community workshops will be facilitated with these communities in late October/ early November to discuss forum results and form a recommendation for council to consider in December 2016.
