Let seniors use pool for free, council urged
FORMER City of Subiaco Mayor Tony Costa has asked councillors to consider providing free admission for senior ratepayers to use Lords Gym swimming pool.
Mr Costa spoke to councillors at Tuesday night’s meeting, explaining the health benefits of swimming pools to the senior community.
He said he had been concerned about how the rates were being spent and free admission was a way the City could give back to ratepayers.
“I implore you to extend the courtesy of letting senior ratepayers use the aquatic facility, as our rates fund it,” he said.
“It’s time for the elected council to be productive… to create a fitter and healthier community.”
Chief executive Don Burnett said the City was looking into Mr Costa’s request.
“The City is currently reviewing membership options at Lords and these comments will be taken on board as part of the review,” he said.
