Resident Update - March 2016

A sewer network for San Isidore will be included as a concept in the draft Long Term Financial Plan 2016-26, which will be placed on public exhibition in May 2016.

Resident Update - September 2015

Wagga Wagga City Council recently provided the residents of San Isidore with information relating to the NSW State Government's Regional Water and Wastewater Backlog Program.

The information provided to the residents of San Isidore, was to inform them of grant funding opportunities in which Council could service the village with a new village sewer network to help eliminate the need for Onsite Sewer Management Systems.

Council staff hosted an additional information workshop with residents to discuss this opportunity and allow residents to voice any concerns they may have at the San Isidore Church Hall on Wednesday 18 August 2015.

A total of 63 surveys were returned to Council and around 25 residents attended the community information session.

The results of this consultation demonstrate that the majority of residents support this opportunity.

Council staff has submitted an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the NSW State Government's Regional Water and Wastewater Backlog Program to fund the potential construction phase of the village sewer project.

If the funding application is successful it will be matter for Council to decide to accept the funding and proceed with the project.

If the EOI funding request is successful, Council staff will then be required to undertake a full detailed design and project investigation, including project costs.

Further consultation with the community will occur during this detailed design stage and upon completion, a recommendation from will be provided to Council to either proceed with the project or to decline the offer.

This recommendation will be based upon community support, available properties to connect and the financial viability of the project.

It is not known when a decision on the EOI stage will be made. Council staff will continue to keep the residents of San Isidore informed about this potential project.
