Craig Watkins update on the NBN – attended last night’s council meeting, tower is going someone’s property.  Most likely will go to VCAT.  Other towers will go ahead and be up by September.  Craig spoke with Paul Fletcher who is working with Malcolm Turnbull on Coalition policy. Craig explained the details that the service will not cope with the requirements of the district.
House in main street – would  be very suitable – what would we use it for?  Rural Transaction Centre in Newstead , a good model, Kelly talked about the model from Talbot.  Need to do a feasibility study first.  Source grants from other government department is a possibility. Revisit this issue towards the end of the year after we have done the community plan.
