Dominique BayensMidwest Times

The Shire of Yalgoo is set to receive significant upgrades to its sports oval and facilities after receiving $787,000 in Federal Government funding.

Upgrades to the Yalgoo sports oval and the construction of club rooms, storage and change rooms to support the creation of a dual-purpose oval and rifle range is set to go ahead at a projected cost of $937,000.

The project is one of 110 successful applicants across rural, regional and remote Australia under the Building Better Regions Fund.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the Coalition Government would invest $219.5 million in the projects.

“I aim to help build the kinds of regional communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and providing infrastructure to rural, regional and remote Australia through the Building Better Regions Fund does just that,” she said.
