Whitsunday Regional Council will provide one off payments of $17,000 to the Proserpine JuniorSporting Complex and $25,000 to the Whitsunday Sports Park – providing the clubs with a muchneeded financial boost.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said Council entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the clubs to take over ground maintenance of the fields in return for annual funding contributions.
“Both groups were expecting these contributions in payment of invoices issued in the 2013/14financial year but due to the expiration of the MOU the payments weren’t processed,” she said.
“Many of these sporting committees are not-for-profit and are made up of volunteers who freelygive their time and energy to help their community.
“This funding will be a valuable source for these clubs to be able to finance their activities andmaintain facilities.”
