Drought Funding - $1 Million

Council apologises to the community, but due to time constraints from the Federal Government, Council was unable to consult with the community regarding project ideas.

Please see special meeting minutes (click here) for the submitted list, which encompasses the following and is within their particular guidelines: 

1) Community mobility and connectedness;

2) Public amenity; and

3) Community wellbeing

KITCHENER STREET

Please be advised that Council has just been informed that APA (the gas pipe company) need to re-wrap the protective coating on their gas pipe from Cotton Rd, through SM Oval Grounds (not across the oval) and along Kitchener Street from Soldiers Memorial Oval to Meadows St. We appreciate that SA Water have also recently been working along Kitchener St and this will now entail another short period of disruption along this stretch.

These companies work independently of Council and we would like to apologise on their behalf for any short-term disruption this upgrade to the gas pipe may create.
