Superannuation scheme needs changing
The City of Greater Bendigo has provided $53.6 million in its budget to undertake a range of capital and major works projects and initiatives throughout the municipality during the 2012/2013 financial year.
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Alec Sandner said Council is very fortunate to have the capacity to maintain a large capital and major works program so it can continue to invest in the future of the municipality.
“Greater Bendigo continues to experience strong growth and it is important for Council to continue to provide new infrastructure and undertake works to cater for our growing community.
“Major projects to undertaken in the coming 12 months include a major $6.5 million expansion of Bendigo Art Gallery and a $6.5 million redevelopment of Bendigo Library. Council has been able to attract grants which will meet around half the construction costs of both the gallery and library projects. A further $2 million has been allocated to complete the new Edwards Street Multi Storey car park facility.
“Council will also spend $11 million for road infrastructure projects which includes more than $7 million on road renewal work for sealed roads, $2 million on road renewal work for unsealed roads, $1.1 million for footpaths and $323,000 for kerb and channel works. This in addition to the $10.6 million we will spend on our general road and associated infrastructure maintenance program.
“Council also plans to spend a record $5.4 million to undertake drainage projects to help address a backlog of works that have resulted from past flooding events. This will allow us to undertake drainage projects in Bendigo, California Gully, Eaglehawk, Epsom, Flora Hill, Golden Square, Huntly, Ironbark, Kangaroo Flat, Maiden Gully, Quarry Hill, Strathdale and White Hills,” said Cr Sandner.
