Cathy to celebrate with communities
Federal Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan will be celebrating new mobile phone towers with communities at Kanumbra and Highlands on Thursday, 1 November.
Ms McGowan said the new towers highlighted an effective partnership between the community, Murrindindi Shire Council and state and federal governments to resolve an important issue.
“I am so pleased to be able to celebrate new mobile phone towers with the communities they service,” Ms McGowan said.
“Locals in Kanumbra and Highlands are to be commended for working hard to ensure their towns were allocated new mobile tower phones to improve coverage.
“Come along to the tower events and celebrate community action that has achieved strong results.”
The mobile phone towers were activated earlier this year. They are among 38 towers funded under rounds one and two of the Mobile Black Spot Programme.
The Kanumbra community celebrations will be held from 12pm at the Yarck Community Hall. The Highlands event will be held from 2.30pm at the Highlands Community Hall
