Latrobe City Council is ready to partner with the new Labor Federal Government following the results of the Federal election over the weekend.
During the election campaign, Labor made an election commitment of $10 million to the Gippsland Logistics Precinct. The funding will be a substantial contribution to Stage Two of the project, which will support the development of internal road and utility infrastructure and flood mitigation earthworks.
Council awaits the delivery of this commitment and is ready to work with the Federal Government to progress the project which is crucial to the future success of the region.
Council looks forward to meeting with Ministers from the new Cabinet of Australia, particularly to progress Latrobe City’s Strength Led Transition.
Council also wishes to congratulate Member for Gippsland Darren Chester and Member for Monash Russell Broadbent for securing another term.
Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan welcomed a partnership with the new Federal Government.
“Council wish to congratulate the new Federal Government for their successful election over the weekend.
“An election is an exciting time as all levels of government look to partner for positive outcomes over the new term. This is also true for Latrobe City, as we have many vital aspirations that require partnership and support for the prosperity of our City.
“As a Council, we look forward to the opportunity to work closely with the new Federal Government to deliver this vision.
“We will continue to work with our longstanding Federal Members as we progress the economic transformation of our City. This includes several recent announcements including Clean Hydrogen, the Barramundi Farm and the Energy from Waste Facility which we look forward to seeing delivered,” said Cr. O’Callaghan.
