Funding for the Penola By-Pass was the subject of discussion at Tuesday”s meeting of the Wattle Range Council. Work began on Stage 1 of the By-Pass in October last year 2014, and CEO Peter Harriott advised council that he expects this stage to be complete by March, taking into account possible delays due to bad weather.
The $9m budget for Stage 1 was provided by the State Government and the $11m (approx) is yet to be confirmed for Stage 2.
Mayor Peter Gandolfi said a meeting to discuss Federal Funding for Stage 2 with Member for Barker Tony Pasin had taken place in July of last year and he is hoping for Mr Pasin’s support.
Cr Gwenda Lawlor submitted a motion on notice that a delegation of Mayor Gandolfi, Deputy Mayor Dycer and CEO Peter Harriott meet with Mr Pasin as a matter of urgency.
