FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2019 VOL 13#43 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU FREE EVERY FRIDAY VICTORIAN Premier Daniel An- drews has vowed to further investi- gate how the Victorian Government can fund an $8.5million shortfall to ensure the completion of the Mil- dura South Regional Sporting Pre- cinct (MSRSP). Premier Andrews made the commitment during his visit to Mildura last week to an- nounce the return of the Mildura Base Hospital to public management, where he was also asked about a number of other issues concerning our region. Top of the list was the $8.5million fund- ing shortfall for the MSRSP – a Mildura Future Ready project, which is hoped will commence construction soon. Mr Andrews said that attracting big events to Victoria was vitally important for the State’s economy as a whole, adding that he was keen to see regional Victoria receive its fair share of events. “Apart from events held in Melbourne, I am always interested in pushing more events into regional Victoria and that should extend into a community like this,” he said. Asked if his Government could see their way clear to fund the $8.5million shortfall for the MSRSP project, the Premier said that he was aware of the project, and the plans for an AFL- standard oval. • Continued Page 2 A Premier’s promise Daniel Andrews vows to consider MSRSP funding Photo: PAUL MENSCH By John Dooley firstname.lastname@example.org @MilduraWeekly @MilduraWeekly • HEAR ME, HEAR YE: The Victorian Premier was in Mildura recently to announce the return of the Mildura Base Hospital to public control amongst other things, including a vow to consider extra State funding for the MSRSP.
