Air­port re-site up for vote

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

A new fa­cil­ity for the Ger­ald­ton-Gree­nough SES could be con­structed in the Ger­ald­ton Air­port Precinct, if Greater Ger­ald­ton coun­cil­lors en­dorse the mo­tion at next week’s meet­ing.

The pro­posal would see the SES re­lo­cate from its cur­rent fa­cil­ity on the cor­ner of Ed­ward and Davies roads in Utakarra to the north­ern bound­ary of the air­port. The project would be fully funded through the State Gov­ern­ment’s 2017-18 Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Grant Scheme Cap­i­tal Grants.

Brief­ing notes in the agenda noted once the fa­cil­ity is con­structed, the Emer­gency Ser­vices Levy would fund the op­er­a­tion and main­te­nance.

If ap­proved, the grant would in­ject about $1.66 mil­lion into the lo­cal econ­omy over two years.
