Fed­eral Mem­ber for Indi Cathy Mc­Gowan was pleased to hear about ma­jor projects in the Ru­ral City of Be­nalla at this week’s Indi Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Round­table.

Act­ing Mayor Peter Davis joined other Indi lo­cal gov­ern­ment may­ors and CEOs in Wan­garatta to dis­cuss the town’s new 120-bed nurs­ing home, new pre-cast con­crete fac­tory and fund­ing op­tions for sport­ing fa­cil­ity up­grades.

‘‘The new pre-cast con­crete plant is a ma­jor win for Be­nalla and North East Vic­to­ria,’’ Ms Mc­Gowan said.

‘‘It will boost the lo­cal econ­omy and en­sure jobs are avail­able in the re­gion.

‘‘Hav­ing dis­cus­sions with lo­cal gov­ern­ments to­gether twice a year en­sures may­ors and CEOs are aware of fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and the as­sis­tance avail­able for their ap­pli­ca­tions.

‘‘It is a de­light to hear about the many projects hap­pen­ing around Indi that have di­rect ben­e­fits for com­mu­ni­ties.’’

Fur­ther fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in­clude the Build­ing Bet­ter Re­gions Fund.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open to or­gan­i­sa­tions with an Aus­tralian Busi­ness Num­ber and can be made at www.busi­ness.gov.au/ as­sis­tance/build­ing-bet­ter-re­gions-fund un­til Novem­ber 15.
