VOTING is now open for the City of Melville’s third Project Robin Hood with the community encouraged to have its say on how best to allocate the programs $100,000 funding pool.

More than 20 projects aimed at building better neighbourhoods and more connected communities are available for the public to vote.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey encouraged anyone who lives, works, studies or visits Melville to jump online to support their local community by voting for their favourite projects.

“Project Robin Hood is the first of its kind in WA and passes the authority and responsibility of decision making back to the community, who decide how this proportion of ratepayer’s money is invested back into the City,” he said.

“The community provided all the project ideas and if voted for will also take responsibility to implement those projects with support from the City.

“I have been amazed with the diversity of projects this year, from kid entrepreneur markets, to helping bats and minimising mozzies and therapy dogs to outdoor fitness equipment – there is something for everyone.
