A re-elected Morrison Government will help community groups in Mitchell to lower their power bills and play their part in reducing Australia’s emissions by providing grants to eligible community organisations for small-scale solar and battery projects.
The $5 million Solar Communities Program forms part of the Coalition Government’s $50 million investment in the Energy Efficient Communities Program.
Federal Member for Mitchell has today announced the Morrison Government will provide $69,567 for the installation of 124 CCTV cameras over 17 public locations within the Hills community.
The funding has been committed under Round 3 of the Coalition’s $30 million Safer Communities Fund.
“Partnering with The Hills Shire Council, local police and community sports clubs and facility users is the best way to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour and prevent it from happening at all.
Patients in Mitchell and throughout the North West Sydney will now be able to access lifesaving scans for cancer, stroke, heart and other medical conditions, with the Liberal National Government announcing a new MRI licence for Rouse Hill Medical Imaging located in Panmure Street, Rouse Hill.
This MRI licence means locals will be able to access a Medicare rebate for an estimated 5,900 services a year – saving lives and reducing the costs for patients.
The 2019-20 Budget is the next stage of the Morrison Government’s plan to build a stronger economy and secure a better future for all Australians.
Federal Member for Mitchell, the Hon Alex Hawke MP, said the Budget delivers the first surplus in more than a decade, creates more jobs, lowers taxes and guarantees essential services like schools, hospitals and roads.
“After more than a decade of deficits, this budget forecasts a surplus of $7.1 billion in 2019-20 – a
$55.5 billion turnaround from the deficit we inherited seven years ago,” Alex Hawke said.
