Port Stephens Residents, We Need Your Help!
Port Stephens Koalas is competing for $200,000 funding to fit out the Koala Hospital Building. To be successful we must win a community ballot conducted by the NSW Government.
Voting opened on July 15 and closes on August 15 2019. Important steps to follow are:
To be eligible to vote you must:
• Reside in the Port Stephens Electorate
• Have a current Medicare card to verify your identity and age
• Have, or register for, a MyServiceNSW Account
• Be 16 years age or older
Note: Unless you have a MyServiceNSW Account you cannot access the system to vote.
Steps to follow if you already have a MyServiceNSW account
• Log on to your MyServiceNSW account.
• Select ‘Port Stephens’ Electorate.
• Select ‘Browse Projects’. A map of Port Stephens will appear with the different projects below the map (scroll down).
• Select 3 projects in preference – 1st. Fit Out Koala Hospital and 2 others.
• Submit vote.
We are one of 14 projects competing for funds. You must select a minimum of 3 projects in order of preference. Make sure you select ‘Fit Out of Koala Hospital Building’ as #1and 2 others with a project value of approx.$30,000 each for your #2 and #3 preference. Selecting the lower value projects as your 2nd and 3rd preferences enhances the chances of success of our bid. We are one of 5 projects supported by Port Stephens Council however community voting alone will determine the outcome. Port Stephens Koalas is responsible for the fit out costs of the hospital.
Winning this funding is absolutely critical to enabling us to open and operate the hospital in the manner required to save the Port Stephens koala population.
Please vote to support our application and encourage your friends to vote in our support. Every vote counts.
