De­pot’s bound­ary re­align­ment

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

The south­ern bound­ary of Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s works de­pot at Po­sei­don Road Corowa is to be re­lo­cated nine me­tres to the north of its cur­rent align­ment.

A busi­ness owner ad­join­ing the south­ern bound­ary ap­proached coun­cil to re­align the bound­ary to im­prove op­er­a­tions of his truck­ing busi­ness.

Coun­cil unan­i­mously agreed to the re­quest, which in­cludes the ap­pli­cant meet­ing all as­so­ci­ated costs, on the mo­tion of Crs David Long- ley and An­drew Kennedy at coun­cil’s monthly March meet­ing.

The costs in­clude pur­chase of the land at the cur­rent ad­ver­tised rate within the Corowa Air­port In­dus­trial Es­tate of $30 per sqm.

Cr Fred Long­mire asked if there were any con­cerns about the change to the de­pot’s size, par­tic­u­larly as some of the re­quested area was to be used for staff carpark­ing.

«No con­cerns,» In­terim Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler re­sponded. «We’ve been get­ting along for a num­ber of years.

«The coun­cil de­pot is go­ing to­wards a Mas­ter Plan. There’s been good dis­cus­sion amongst coun­cil em­ploy­ees. We can make much bet­ter use of the site.»
