An extraordinary meeting of Eurobodalla Council will be held on Thursday 17 December.
The meeting will consider a notice of motion brought by Cr Anthony Mayne to rescind Council’s decision to lease Batemans Bay Community Centre.
Councillors voted 6-3 on Tuesday 8 December to commence negotiations with a local community agency to lease the centre commencing July 2021.
Cr Mayne’s motion calls for Tuesday’s decision to be rescinded and “that Council resolve to maintain the Community Centre as currently being operated; with a review of those operations and functions being undertaken after the completion of the Batemans Bay Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre.” "While the concept of a lease of the BBCC has been on the table to help offset the cost of the BBAAC, there was an understanding that the community would be offered a like for like to rent rooms at the BBAAC when it was completed. There seems to be a level of misunderstanding as to this point. This point will require clarification as part of the Rescission Motion. " Anthony Mayne.
