MORE than $73,000 will be going to the townships of Gunbower, Nanneella, Kyvalley and Lockington for the implementation of their community plans.
Campaspe Shire approved the Community Plan Implementation Funds at their recent council meeting, which will go towards new mowers, a defibrillator, support for wetland trails and a new air conditioner.
Each town has worked with their communities to develop new actions and to build on past ones to achieve objectives outlined in their community plans.
The Lions Park redevelopment was the main priority for Gunbower, which received $50,906.53.
The majority of these funds have been allocated to the project to develop and promote wetland trails for drivers, walkers canoeists and bike riders.
