Latrobe City Council has proposed three local projects to be considered for drought relief funding from the Federal Government. Council will apply for funds from round two of the Drought Communities Program to support infrastructure improvements in Flynn, Glengarry and Toongabbie.

The specific infrastructure works endorsed by Council are for stage two of the Flynn Hall, works to the Mechanics Institute Hall, Rail Trail and Fred King Oval in Glengarry and pedestrian and draining improvements for the Toongabbie Mechanics Institute Hall. The projects will now be evaluated by the Federal Government.

This comes after five Latrobe City projects were endorsed by Council in December last year and subsequently approved for funding as part of stage one of the drought programs. These projects are now in development with works due to commence soon.

"The Drought Communities Program is a great opportunity to upgrade and revitalise infrastructure in some of our smaller outlying communities that have suffered from drought in recent years," Latrobe City Mayor Councillor Dan Clancey said.

"All of the Latrobe City projects have been carefully selected based on an assessment of the impact of drought on these communities and what is needed to support affected residents."
