Towong Shire

Upgrades to Existing Facilities

Towong Shire Council is committed to working with the community to identify priority facilities and infrastructure that warrant investment. Wherever possible, we try to maximise our own Council resources by seeking a contribution from the State and/or Federal Government. The following projects are a snapshot of where efforts are currently being directed.
