Visit to Canberra raises confidence

Colac Otway Shire mayor Jason Schram met Prime Minister Scott Morrison on a visit to Canberra where he discussed priority projects.

Colac Otway Shire mayor Jason Schram is confident three City Deal projects along the Great Ocean Road will receive funding, regardless of the outcome of the Federal Election.

Cr Schram and Colac Otway chief executive Peter Brown joined a G21 delegation in Canberra last week where they met politicians from both sides of politics calling for bipartisan support for the City Deal.

The City Deal includes Federal Government funding commitments for the Apollo Bay Harbour Precinct, Skenes Creek Walk and Kennett River infrastructure.

Cr Schram and Mr Brown also discussed Colac Otway’s priority projects with Wannon MP Dan Tehan and Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson during the visit to Canberra.
