Sealed and unsealed roads and community facility improvements are at the forefront of Nambucca Valley Council’s draft Operational Plan, Delivery Program and Long-Term Financial Plan, which is on public exhibition until 4.00pm Thursday, 8 June 2023.
Mayor of Nambucca Valley Council, Councillor Rhonda Hoban, OAM encourages interested community members to provide feedback on the draft documents, which outline Council’s ten-year annual budgets.
“In 2023/24, Council is proposing to deliver an Expenditure Budget totalling over $52 million, investing more than $11 million in capital and delivering a range of projects and programs across the Nambucca Valley,” Cr Hoban said.
“We will be drawing on reserves and considerable government grant funding to primarily address our sealed and unsealed road networks which have been severely impacted by wet weather and flooding. Council will also be delivering some improvements to community facilities and public spaces around the Valley.”
Cr Hoban said the Operational Plan aims to support economic development, as the region adjusts to the impacts of natural disasters.
“Just like any other business, Council has been significantly impacted by natural disasters, and as with the State and Federal Governments, we are working hard to support local industry and jobs, and get our economy moving again,” she said.
“I encourage all interested residents to review these documents and comment on our proposed program of works before the close of the exhibition period.”
