Brewarrina Council is ready to ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ with a schedule of exciting projects and upgrades across the shire.

With another round of funding from the federal government, as well as more than $900,000 through the Murray Darling Basin Economic Development fund and contributions from the Showground Trust funding program, Council had already identified its list of priority projects.

Brewarrina Shire Council General Manager, Jeff Sowiak said that there will also be $1.6 million in funding through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure grant announced by Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton.

“This is yet to be signed off, so council wants to be prepared and have applications ready in advance,” Mr Sowiak said.

“As those funds are made available, we want to make sure we are ready to rock and roll.

“We have some great projects ready go, including the lighting at the Geoff New Oval.

“The light poles are sub-standard and we’ve had problems fixing the globes and putting new ones in, so upgrading the lighting there will complement the work we’ve already done with the clubhouse, amenities and gym.

“Another top priority is the Splash Park at the Goodooga Pool, which is a very popular proposal within the community.
