Half-a-million dollar turnaround for new Enmore Pool

Marrickville Greens media release

3 September 2012

The first full year financial figures for the new Annette Kellerman Pool in Enmore have been tabled and there has been a turn around of over half a million dollars.

“This half-a-million dollar turnaroud is a great result and I am really happy that Enmore Pool is not only extremely popular but a financial success as well,” Greens Councillor, Max Phillips said.

“This result shows council can deliver big projects that provide the facilities our community wants without being a burden on rate payers.”

“The pool was budgeted to lose over $300,000 last financial year, but instead Council enjoyed a profit of  $224,622.

“These funds can go towards other community infrastructure projects such as Petersham Pool or the new library project.”Greens councillors championed the pool against some pretty stiff opposition so this is really heartening.”

“This result puts council on a surer footing to undertake other major projects like the new library and park at Marrickville.”

“The Greens do not support the proposed 6.72% rate rise for the Library and this result should give the communtiy confidence we can deliver important facilities responsibly,” he said.
