Latest news from Cr Graham


Local businesses will soon be able to take steps to be more environmentally sustainable, with Council in the process of establishing an Environmental Upgrade Agreement (EUA) program.

The initiative will help Maroondah businesses access funding for building works to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste, and cut water use.

To be launched early in 2020, the program involves businesses working with a financial institution and Council to enter into the EUA, which means they can pay for the improvement works through their rates.

This is a win/win for businesses and the environment, as it makes upgrading to sustainable options more affordable, and has the opportunity to create more local jobs and ongoing cost savings for tenants and business owners.
