Goulburn-Murray Water has extended the deadline for expressions of interest from customers, communities and stakeholders to help it progress key projects arising from its strategic plan development.
The original deadline of November 3 has been pushed back two weeks, so applications will now be taken until November 17.
‘‘We are in a challenging and changing environment that is set to continue in coming years, with changing climate and international markets impacting on our customers and G-MW,’’ managing director Pat Lennon said.
He said G-MW was now implementing its strategic plan in response to these challenges, to ensure the authority remained sustainable now and into the foreseeable future.
To further that work, G-MW is calling for expressions of interest to several important projects: the development of a 25-year Goulburn-Murray Irrigation District Asset Strategy and the development of a tariff and pricing review.
‘‘We’re aware our irrigation customers, in particular, have had a very busy start to the season,’’ Mr Lennon said.
‘‘We’ve extended our deadline to ensure all interested people who can make a contribution to our collective future have had sufficient time to consider applying.’’
Applicants are required to fill out an expression of interest application form addressing selection criteria.
