Wollongong City Council commits $1.1 million to improve sports field lighting
Wollongong City Council's recently approved three year capital works budget of $282 million is to include $1.1 million in funding to improve sports field lighting.
Better footpaths and cycleways, more trees and improvements to community facilities are some of the other priorities on Council’s ‘to-do list’ over the next few years.
Commenting on the budget, Wollongong Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor David Brown stated “this is a significant amount of money and people will be able to see this investment in action whether it’s through more trees being planted as part of our Urban Greening Strategy, community programs in Dapto, improvements to the Helensburgh town centre, to landscaping at Fred Finch Park in Berkley.
“What’s particularly exciting is we’ve delivered this without increasing our domestic waste or stormwater management charges, and no rates rise above the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal’s recommendation."
The Council received 97 submissions on the draft Delivery Program when it was put on public exhibition earlier this year.
Councillor Brown added “Council will always be about the daily services like rubbish collection, libraries and swimming pools but we’re also putting in place plans and infrastructure to make sure we’re delivering for our community into the future."
