Council landfill tenders soon

The Alice Town Council is about to call tenders for the refurbishment of the landfill using $3.5m in Federal money from Regional Development Australia (RDA), and $775,000 from the NT Government.
The RDA round one funding was $150m which was divvied up between 34 projects around Australia.
Alice Mayor Damien Ryan is the chairman of RDA NT.
He says there will be major changes to the landfill, better opportunities for recycling and a save and salvage store.
“The public won’t need to go to the tip face any more,” he says.
Mr Ryan says the rules for the current RDA round two have been changed, requiring that at least half the costs for each project are covered by funds not coming from Canberra, such as state or local governments or private contributors.
It is expected that Federal Minister for Regional Australia Simon Crean will this week announce Territory projects for round two.
Three have been put forward, this time none from Central Australia.
