Coast Guard Hub must be funded

The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien is encouraging the Andrews Labor Government to provide its share of funding to see the completion of the Port Welshpool Marine Search and Rescue Hub Redevelopment.

Mr O’Brien said that the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association (AVCGA) Port Welshpool Flotilla had applied for funding through Emergency Management Victoria which, with the support of further funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program to be allocated through the South Gippsland Shire, would see the project reach fruition.

“This is a vital project for the community, and it must be funded,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The Shire has worked with the Federal Government to be able to put $150,000 on the table and it’s time for the state government to come to the table.”
