On Monday night 26th June Mitchell Shire Council agreed to support the establishment of an Advisory Committee to prepare a detailed implementation (management) plan and look at possible alternative routes. The Plan is to come back to Mitchell Shire Council before any grants are sought for the Rail Trail.
Murrindindi Council’s resolution was along the same lines.
The Mansfield Council resolved to begin construction of the trail on their section from Mansfield to Maindample.
Details of these resolutions are in the Council minutes from the 20/6/06 meetings on the respective websites.
