Council Mayor Cr Kim O’Keeffe provided an update on a few of the larger-scale projects in Greater Shepparton.
“Council strives to consistently improve the liveability of our region by upgrading facilities and services,” Cr O’Keeffe said.
“Occasionally this means residents and businesses will be impacted, but the projects we undertake are always for the benefit of our region.
“We acknowledge as projects progress, changes can be made to lessen the impact and we encourage residents and business operators to continue to talk to Council’s project staff throughout these projects.”
