Chief executive Patience Harrington said her councilwould seek$7 million viathe government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

It follows the council failing to secure $10 million from the federal government for the same project last year.

The council scaled down the budget for stage 1 of the sporting complex from $20 million to $14 million, prompting the reduced tally being sought.

Ms Harrington said Wodonga’s case for funding from Canberra had been strengthened by extra funding which had emerged since last year’s application.

That includes $650,000 from Recreation Victoria, $500,000 from Cricket Victoria, $100,000 in netball funding and $200,000 assistance from North East Water.

Ms Harrington also said the council was hopeful of an announcement of further Victorian government funding by the end of this week.

She told Monday night’s council meeting that the city was still keen to proceed with Baranduda Fields, provided other levels of government contributed.

“The council has and will continue to talk to state and federal governments to gain support on what is a critical priority project for Wodonga and the wider region that will have positive impacts on employment and the local economy,” Ms Harrington said.

Meanwhile, the council is expected to discuss whether its monthly meetings will be live-streamed when it reconvenes in March.

Ms Harrington said a report was being prepared for consideration following behind-closed-doors talks.

“The council has discussed live-streaming at the councillor briefings held on January 16 and February 13,” she said.

“Councillors have requested that a report be provided to a council meeting, which will canvass the issues related to live-streaming and webcasting.

“The report wouldalso examine alternatives such as live-posting on Facebook and Twitter, press conference post council meeting and audio-visual recording post council meeting.”
