Ball Park negotiatio­ns continue

- BY ROBERT MUIR

Contract negotiatio­ns regarding the management of Ball Park Corowa are continuing with a final decision expected at Federation Council’s next monthly meeting on May 18.

Council has been unable to execute a contract with the preferred tenderer, Remlap Pty Ltd, as resolved at council’s January meeting, and considered an update report at the April council meeting on where the negotiatio­ns reached.

At its latest meeting, council resolved that General Manager Adrian Butler be delegated to further negotiate with interested parties and report back to the Extraordin­ary Council meeting on May 4 (yesterday) and continue on the current arrangemen­t with the temporary park manager.

A further update can be provided after the May Extraordin­ary Council meeting, but it is more likely a final decision will not be made until the ordinary May meeting on May 18.

“In the interim, to keep the park operationa­l, especially considerin­g the busy time with many visitors using the site over the recent Victorian long weekend, council has continued with staffing the park,” Mr Butler advised.

“Should contract negotiatio­ns continue to take time, council will be required to seek other short-term arrangemen­ts for within the park.”
