With no tender yet for the management the Ewingsdale sports facility, questions have been raised by the deputy mayor about the money being allocated to keep it afloat.

In the minutes from the last meeting, Council have ‘declined’ to accept any tenders on the basis that no acceptable tenders were received. Deputy mayor Basil Cameron told Echonetdaily, ‘As a consequence, Resolution 12-39 was passed to allocate funds from the general fund so that Council can undertake management in the interim.’ He says the funds allocated are in addition to the $200,000 already allocated for this year.

‘The reason I voted against any additional funds is that about half of the original $200K is still unspent and it is premature to allocate further funds. At the time I warned that without a clear plan for the management of the BRSCC, it was likely that Council and ratepayers would be saddled with increasing cost.
