STRATHBOGIE Shire residents will gain from the state budget announced last week.
Among funding announced was the $950,000 to Euroa Secondary College for upgrades to the Benalla and Wangaratta hospitals, and the appointment of a full time paramedic for Nagambie.
Announcing the Nagambie win last Thursday, Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria) said a community push to gain at least one full time paramedic had been taken notice of by politicians.
“The minister has heard and taken notice and made the decision the time is right to increase this service in Nagambie,” Ms Symes said.
“It is fantastic to see Nagambie get its one permanent ambulance and paramedic for this town.
