Move for town council to manage the aquatic centre

The town council may manage the aquatic center in its own right, according to a well informed source.

This follows the collapse of the arrangement with the YWCA which withdrew from the job, scheduled to run until 2014, saying it had substantially under-quoted.

The source says the council is looking at expressions of interest so far received from organisations around Australia.

The council has been managing the landfill since the collapse of the Subloo contract, and public opinion seems to be that the council staff running the dump now are doing a fine job.

If ratepayers' money can be saved, keeping the pool management in-house may be a good idea, says the source. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
