Let se­niors use pool for free, coun­cil urged

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

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.

Reded­i­cat­ing Harry and Al­lan John’s trees were, from left, niece Mar­garet Wadding­ham, nephew Bob Dixon, An­nie Hazard, grand-niece Ja­nine Dixon and Aysiah Uren (10).
