What a great article on the front page of the Maribyrnong Leader (What about us? Maribyrnong Leader, September 28). I too totally support more funding for the West. I really cannot see how the inner West can sustain its rapid population growth without extra funding for existing local facilities and programs, including the many infrastructure concerns that are not being adequately tackled. We certainly deserve a better deal from government.
We are the West Footscray Neighbourhood House (WFNH) are stretched to the absolute limit. Currently we receive just 25 hours of funding from the government. We need 40 hours of funding to offer our community a standard they deserve. It’s plain ridiculous!
Thank you for raising ours and other serious concerns for the inner West in relation inappropriate funding commitments made for huge corporate facilities on the other side of the river.
