Goondiwindi PCYC will now lease the Golden Age Centre following a decision at the Goondiwindi Council meeting.
From Sunday, 1 October 2017, the Golden Age Centre will be under lease to the Goondiwindi PCYC, therefore the PCYC will be looking after operations including bookings.
Mayor Graeme Scheu says Council understands the importance of keeping this as a community resource.
“The plan by the PCYC Committee is to honour existing commitments and bookings to ensure that the PCYC lease does not disadvantage current and future users. In principle, the proposal simply changes the management of the facility to the PCYC, which allows for a reduction in costs to Council and for the building to be used more by the community.”
“It will be business as usual with added activities programmed by the PCYC.”
The same will occur for venue hire for parties and functions.
The lease is initially for one year with the further option of another year and it is seen as a success for all.
A reminder and contact details for the PCYC will be distributed via social media on October 1 and advices directed to all current users.
