THE Waranga Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion will re­ceive sup­port from Kyabram Town Coun­cil on a sug­ges­tion to set up a bus de­pot in cen­tral Mel­bourne for coun­try and in­ter­state bus ser­vices.

Coun­cil is to write to the Min­is­ter for Trans­port, Mr Nixon, ask­ing for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the set­ting up of such a de­pot.

“Even Kyabram is con­sid­er­ing a bus ter­mi­nal in our small town,” Cr Vic Kuhle said, re­fer­ring to Coun­cil plans for the Union Street build­ing.

The idea from the Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion re­ceived the nod from all coun­cil­lors at the last meet­ing of Coun­cil.

The let­ter stated that the only de­pot at present was Wight’s Tourist Bureau and that was closed on the week­ends. The near­est toi­lets are up­stairs in an ad­ja­cent build­ing and the taxi ranks are no longer near the bureau.

Cr Anne Adams moved that Coun­cil write to the Min­is­ter and Cr Kuhle sec­onded the mo­tion.
