Mildura Rural City Councillors will next month decide whether to purchase a historically significant building in the city’s central business district.

Council has indicated its intention to acquire the building at 70 Deakin Avenue, between Eighth and Ninth Streets, pending community feedback.

If Councillors decide to buy the building, it will be purchased through borrowings in the proposed 2024/2025 Draft Budget.
