Bega Valley Shire Council is seeking comment from the community in regards to the 2017/2018 fees and charges for the use of community halls by schools, Tanja Hall and the Bermagui Community Centre.
Working with volunteer local committees, Council is responsible for the care and maintenance of 23 halls and venues across the Shire. This work takes in WHS and public liability requirements, fire regulations, general maintenance, water and electricity costs, cleaning, mowing and access.
These are places of rich history and provide an important social and cultural function, Council and its volunteer committees are inspired to work hard with this in mind.
The use of the halls by local schools is a particular point of interest –a number of NSW Government schools use these spaces for activities and events. Council is hoping to achieve a common fee structure for school use across all of the halls to achieve consistency for schools across the Shire.
In addition, following earlier feedback from the community, Council has allowed for further public comment around fees and charges for Tanja community hall and the Bermagui Community Centre.
Further information can be found on Council’s website.
Submissions should be made in writing and are open until Monday August 7, and will be presented at the August 30 Council meeting.
