    I was wondering when that was coming out.

    No state or federal government funding last year. Gate entry still by far the biggest contributor to the RMB's budget.

    Ratepayers, I would have said, who also pay gate entry/parking on top on rent and service charges.

    Disappointing the government which benefit widely don't put back to the driver of the $450 million
    that Buller adds to Growth State Product.

    Note the government give the southern pair (lake mountain and Baw Baw) $6.23 million.
    What Buller could do with that sort of help.

    I think Baw Baw might have spent there share of the $6.23 million in the creative accounting dept.
    A 31% increase in visitor numbers to 76,635 does not match up to the 62% increase in vistor days to 123,455. The resort only has about 500 beds, so where were they staying? Typical suss figures from a unanswerable govt dept.

    Don’t forget they have the grant for the new dam. I think the grant is around $8.0M.

    It’s good to see RMB is trying to keep costs down and include the stakeholders in the tender reviews.

    BSL are paying half the dam, and AFAIK, the citys in melb don't pay for dams
    used for melb water, state or fed gov pay.

    nearly time to vote, and I'm prepared to take one for the team and vote for the party
    that offers to match the hand out each year to the southern fellow Alpine Resorts.
