The Andrews Labor Government is putting families first by giving the Mortlake community the great sport and recreation facilities it deserves.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced Moyne Shire Council is set to benefit from the Labor Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund by receiving a $200,000 grant for the Mortlake Swimming Pool Wet Deck Upgrade.
The project will upgrade the Mortlake Swimming Pool’s gutters and wet deck to improve access and functionality of the pool for all users.
As well as the contribution from the Andrews Labor Government, the Moyne Shire Council will contribute $433,200 for this project.
Grassroots sports clubs are the lifeblood of our towns. They are where communities get together, locals embrace healthy and active lifestyles and kids enjoy special memories that stay with them for life.
Victoria is the sporting state, and it doesn’t happen by chance. We’re upgrading grassroots facilities all over the state, because it changes people’s lives for the better.
Quotes attributable to Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney
“The Andrews Labor Government knows how much the Mortlake community enjoys its sport. Our families deserve the best sports and recreation facilities, and that’s exactly what we’re delivering.”
“I wish to congratulate the Moyne Shire Council on the enormous amount of work they have done on this project so far.”
“For too long, communities all over Victoria have had to contend with ageing facilities. We promised we’d help clubs update tired grounds and build the facilities they need.”
Quotes attributable to Mayor, Glenelg Shire Council, Cr Jim Doukas
“Council have recognised the importance of the Mortlake Swimming Pool to the region allocating $250,000 in this current budget for major capital renewal which will complement the $433,200 for the proposed installation of a wet deck in 2017/2018. The wet deck will create a safe environment for all pool users. Council is appreciative of the Victorian Government’s contribution of $200,000 to the wet deck because it is unlikely the project could have proceeded without it.”
