Council ask for $5m for Philip St project
MORE than $5 million has been asked for in federal government funding under National Stronger Regions for the first stage of the Philip St Community Precinct.
It seems Gladstone Regional Council needed to be doubly sure it supported the application because the item appeared again on the council agenda yesterday.
That's despite the fact it was lodged on July 31 and endorsed at a meeting in June.
The council will pay 50% of the costs, matching the funding request, for $5,250,000, in this year's budget.
