Cr Nugent asked after the plan is adopted, what happens in regards to timeframes for implementations, what is the likelihood of grant funding and are there any chances for increased accessibility to the loop of the lake.
The Chief Executive Officer stated that Council staff are currently focusing on the Scout Camp after receiving a grant and are also working with the Local Aboriginal Lands Council on an aboriginal piece. Themes established through the master plan will now work towards detailed projects, which will then become grant projects. There is a regular fund for the maintenance of the lake but there is no capital investment plan, it will be grant based. If the Council of the time wants us to work with accessibility then we will start with that.
Cr Hamling asked what was happening with the café at the lake.
The Chief Executive Officer stated that there will be a new operator in place in the next 2 weeks to open the kiosk then follow on with re-opening the restaurant.
The Meeting Closed at 8.22PM
