One Nation candidate for the state seat of Goulburn, Richard Orchard is saying that the Goulburn Mulwaree area is way ahead of many other centres in the electorate.

 

Mr Orchard met with council officials on Wednesday to be briefed on the organisation's priority list for funding.

 

After being informed of the Aquatic centre redevelopment, the proposed Rail Trail, road infrastructure, recycling of waste water and the proposed hockey centre, Mr Orchard said it is good to see a council so proactive.

 

Council was complimented for having several proposals ready to go and simply needing state and federal government support to move ahead.

State member, Pru Goward and Liberal candidate for Goulburn, Wendy Tuckerman have joined in re-affirming and welcoming a government commitment to upgrade the Yass Water Treatment Plant.

 

Last year, $1.2 million in funding was given to the Yass Valley council to develop a business plan for the project.
