Funding required for North Wangaratta Football Netball Club
Wednesday 23 August 2017 Mr McCURDY (Ovens Valley) My constituency question is to the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change from Nathan Bartlett, who is president of the North Wangaratta Football Netball Club.
A lead contamination of this ground in May 2016 still is not resolved, and the club is on its knees financially.
The Environment Protection Authority Victoria, the Department of Health and Human Services and others have been very slow in ensuring that the site is cleaned up.
The club were recently told they may not play on the surface in 2018, which is clearly unacceptable.
Nathan and the North Wangaratta football club are seeking information from the minister clarifying whether the money set aside in the 2017 May budget is in fact set aside for this club.
Further lengthy delays could see this club fold, which would be a major blow for this community.
