The Ayr Pool is set to receive a major upgrade this financial year, Mayor Bill Lowis announced today in his budget speech.
“Council has allocated $2 million to this project, but this will be dependent on government funding being approved,” he said.
“The upgrade will be based on the results of Council’s community consultation undertaken in 2011.
“A detailed design will be completed in the first half of the financial year and once we get the funding it will be all systems go.”
Cr Lowis said other improvements such as re-roofing the storage shed ($7000) and installing safety balustrades around the grandstand seating ($11,165) were also included.
“Home Hill Pool also will have safety balustrades installed around the grandstand seating ($11,165),” he said.
“The amenities block at the Home Hill Caravan Park which is beside the Home Hill Pool will be upgraded at a cost of $85,000.
“Council has budgeted to spend $50,000 on the refurbishment of the Millaroo Pool.”
