NEW figures show the agriculture, forestry and fishing sectors have an output of nearly $560m in the Grant district, which is closely followed by the manufacturing sector worth around $183m.

The council area’s economic profile was released as part of its 2017-18 annual report, which provides a snapshot of its financial performance, council projects and goals.

The report was released in the lead up to the local government elections that were finalised this week, which has seen incumbent Mayor Richard Sage returned and a number of fresh faces on the council.
