Council considers Stronger Communities funding

NOT GOOD ENOUGH: This is the water coming out of some properties in town. While a pipe replacement program is underway, extra funding would speed up the project.

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council has listed the town’s aging water main system as an area of priority when it comes to spending the remaining $9 million in Stronger Communities funding from the State Government.

Consultation with the community is underway to decide how the money is best spent with a focus on local infrastructure and services projects that deliver long-term economic and social benefits to the community.

Council is proposing to spend $2 million to speed up their current water main peplacement program. 

In Gundagai, they are considering putting $2.5 million towards the $7 million needed to replace the Gundagai Sewerage Treatment Plant.

Dirty water has been an issue which has plagued residents and council in recent times.
