Director of Engineering and Technical Services' REPORT

Council was notified in February 2015 that it was successful in obtaining $16,665,000 in grant funding for the “Pipeline between Orange to Molong Dam and Molong to Cumnock and Yeoval” project under the State Government’s Restart NSW Water Security for Regions program. Council had applied for $22,220,000 of funding and is continuing to lobby the government for the provision of the balance of the funding for the project. Council has advised Infrastructure NSW that its contribution of $1.2m towards the project will not be committed until full project funding is received.

Draft funding agreements for the project have been received, with a single funding agreement to be prepared covering Cabonne Council’s project and the project to be undertaken by Orange City Council. Council is currently preparing the funding agreement in consultation with Orange City Council and Infrastructure NSW.

The funding agreement for the Water Restart grant will require Council seal. As such, authorisation for the affixing of the common seal is sought.
