Project pipe­line now avail­able to pub­lic

Myrtleford Times - - Letters To The Editor -

LO­CAL res­i­dents and com­mu­nity groups are now able to see where projects im­por­tant to them are po­si­tioned into the fu­ture af­ter Alpine Shire Coun­cil launched a new online tool.

Coun­cil’s di­rec­tor as­sets Will Jeremy said the Project Pipe­line shows the in­dica­tive tim­ing for de­liv­ery of projects be­tween 2019/20 and 2033.

“The Project Pipe­line shows projects which have been raised by coun­cil and the com­mu­nity, and are listed for pos­si­ble de­liv­ery fur­ther into the fu­ture,” he said.

“We want to em­pha­sise that projects in the Project Pipe­line are not locked in – ev­ery pro- ject is sub­ject to coun­cil sup­port and avail­able bud­get for the rel­e­vant fi­nan­cial year.

“The pipe­line dis­plays in­dica­tive tim­ing for de­liv­ery, but is a use­ful tool for com­mu­ni­ties to see where their project may be sit­ting in the mid to long term.”

Mr Jeremy said projects ranged from the day-to-day works, such as foot­path con­struc­tion and road seal­ing, to the very am­bi­tious.

“It also pays to men­tion that some of the longer-term projects are as­pi­ra­tional and would need large amounts of ex­ter­nal fund­ing to go ahead,” he said.

“Coun­cil reg­u­larly re­views com­mu­nity pri­or­i­ties for pro- jects and we un­der­stand that pri­or­i­ties change over time.”

In July coun­cil launched its Project Dash­board which tracks the progress of cap­i­tal works projects across the shire.

The dash­board was de­signed in-house and is one of the first of its kind in lo­cal gov­ern­ment.

It shows the projects coun­cil is cur­rently de­liv­er­ing and how works are pro­gress­ing be­fore be­ing up­dated at the com­ple­tion of each stage.
