Vi­o­let Town the poor cousin with up­grades

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

I AM not a ‘lo­cal’, still a ‘blow in’ af­ter liv­ing near Vi­o­let Town for only a few years.

I have ‘carer’ re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and have not re­ally in­volved my­self in the com­mu­nity here.

But I am amazed at the ob­vi­ous Euroa based coun­cil hav­ing dis­re­gard and bla­tant ne­glect of this vi­brant lit­tle com­mu­nity of Vi­o­let Town.

Two projects, the new toi­let block at the re­cre­ation re­serve and the new Men’s Shed at Shad­forth Re­serve are ap­proach­ing re­spec­tive an­niver­sary of be­ing ap­proved and com­mis­sioned.

But noth­ing has been done, no work be­gun apart from a rit­ual ‘sod turn’ at the Men’s Shed site months ago.

In the year that has passed the cost of the Telford shed for that project has in­creased by sev­eral $1000s.

The hu­mour in VT is that the town should be re­named Euroa North in an ef­fort to have some ac­tion from this high handed lo­calised coun­cil.
