Euroa Gazette - - NEWS - BY GRACE EVANS

THE Coali­tion Gov­ern­ment has re-opened the Mo­bile Black Spot Pro­gram’s Data­base of Re­ported Black Spot Lo­ca­tions for new nom­i­na­tions from state and lo­cal gov­ern­ments, and fed­eral mem­bers of par­lia­ment.

Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa) has said while in­di­vid­ual mem­bers of the pub­lic aren’t able to nom­i­nate an area for con­sid­er­a­tion un­der the pro­gram peo­ple can make blackspots known to Damian Drum as their fed­eral MP or to Strath­bo­gie Shire Coun­cil so they can be con­sid­ered when mo­bile net­work op­er­a­tors are pre­par­ing their pro­pos­als.

Mr Drum said the data­base is open for four weeks and called for all res­i­dents to con­tact his of­fice to nom­i­nate any mo­bile black spot ar­eas.

“The nom­i­na­tions will sup­port round four of the pro­gram which will look to pro­vide new or im­proved mo­bile coverage in ar­eas where there are clear eco­nomic and so­cial ben­e­fits,” he said.
