Black spot plea

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil has called for com­mu­nity in­put to help to iden­tify mo­bile black spot ar­eas lo­cated within the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

A spokesper­son from the coun­cil said it would make an application on be­half of the re­gion to the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s mo­bile black spot pro­gram where limited fund­ing for net­work im­prove­ments or ad­di­tional mo­bile base sta­tions may be avail­able.

‘‘The Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment is im­prov­ing mo­bile phone cov- er­age in re­gional and re­mote Aus­tralia through the mo­bile black spot pro­gram,’’ they said.

Coun­cil has urged res­i­dents to sub­mit spe­cific de­tails sur­round­ing lo­ca­tions with poor mo­bile phone re­cep­tion in the Greater Shep­par­ton area and de­scribe how the black spot af­fects them and their busi­ness.

Sub­mis­sions can be via http:/ /greater­shep­par­ton.com.au/ coun­cil/con­sul­ta­tion/mo­bile-blackspot and close on May 19. For more in­for­ma­tion, email Ro­han Sali at Ro­han.Sali@shep­par­ton.vic.gov.au
