Yarra Ranges Council votes against Funding for Powelltown Trails

At the ordinary meeting on 13th November, 2018, the Yarra Ranges council voted against applying for funding from the Federal Building Better Regions fund program. This would have required council to match the funding dollar for dollar, requiring $4,000,000 from our rates. Although the minutes suggest it is only for construction of a Sporting Pavillion, the money was also for construction of two Mountain Bike Trails and infrastructure for Mountain Bikes at the Powelltown Sports Ground. This shows the council is not being honest.

The vote:

In Favour:            Cr Cliff, Cr Higgins and Cr Stevenson
Against:                Cr Avery, Cr Clarke, Cr Cox and Cr McAllister
Absent:                 Cr Child and Cr Heenan
