Member for Murray Austin Evans announced Council will receive $760,000 in funding to breathe life into local community projects as part of the NSW Government’s $200 million Stronger Country Communities fund.
Mr Evans said Hay is set to benefit from a $560,000 re-development of the Hay Park Playground and a $200,000 development of the Hay Library. “This investment by the Government in Hay will provide residents with improved facilities that the whole region can enjoy.
“This is fantastic news for Hay,” Mr Evans said. “Our community has been calling out for upgrades to local facilities and I’m thrilled these can now be carried out.
