Mayor Badalati said Council will improve roads and footpaths as well as facilities for child care, library, seniors, entertainment, sports and recreation and corporate services in the 2009-10 financial year.

“Approximately $521,000 will be spent on re-sheeting local roads, $150,000 on footpath repairs and $476,000 on parks and playgrounds,” he said.

“A further $452,000 will be invested in a range of maintenance projects to benefit everyone in the local government area.”

Some of the works to be completed in the next 12 months include:

  • upgrades to facilities at Hurstville Golf Course and Clubhouse, Peakhurst Park, Beverly Hills Park, Oatley Park, Hurstville Oval and Olds Park, Mortdale
  • new carpet, modernised toilets and aesthetic improvements at Hurstville City Library
  • new roofing and external building repairs at Penshurst Branch Library

Mayor Badalati said community sporting grounds and leisure, care and learning facilities are important hubs that connect the people of Hurstville City.

“The infrastructure upgrades will improve the leisure and recreation experiences of the community while maintaining first-class standards of environmental sustainability, safety, energy efficiency, and visual appeal,” he said.
