Colac Otway Shire now considering the 2018-2019 Budget; lobby your Councillors

February 21, 2018

Shire Councillors are currently considering the draft budget for the next financial year. We need the Council to commit $200,000 per annum toward running the pool. We are not asking for any capital but an ongoing commitment toward the running costs. Please contact your Councillors and tell them just how important an indoor heated pool is to you and your family. Given that Apollo Bay, Marengo & Skenes Creek contribute more than 22% of the total Shire rate revenue and only receive about 12% of the net spend, this is a small step toward addressing this inequity for something that Apollo Bay has had as its number one priority for so many years.
