The Shire of Kent has received a grant allocation of $349,064 as part of the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program Round 2. This funding is in addition to the $501,000 received in Round 1 and that has been included in the 2020/2021 Budget for Road projects.
Guidelines for expending this additional funding state that projects must be new initiatives and not already included in the current budget.
As the Roads program is at capacity for the current financial year, Council is looking to use the funding to deliver projects with a focus on community infrastructure.
Council has identified a number of projects that funding could be allocated to and invite you to complete a short survey to gauge support / priority and feedback for these suggestions. Council also invites your input into any other projects or ideas that you would like to include for consideration.
We look forward to working with our communities to deliver community infrastructure projects.
