Sporting and recreation clubs in Mount Gambier are invited to apply for up to $50,000 to assist with capital works or upgrades in the City of Mount Gambier 2022/2023 Sport and Recreation Capital Works Program.
Projects considered under the funding program include capital renewal of existing infrastructure, capital upgrades, and new capital assets or projects aimed at increasing the community usage of specific sport or recreation facilities.
The funding is available to assist with projects with a minimum total cost of $10,000 and a maximum total cost of $50,000, with an allocation $100,000 on offer under the 2022/2023 Sport and Recreation Capital Works Program.
City of Mount Gambier General Manager City Infrastructure Barbara Cernovskis said the program encourages sporting and recreation clubs to partner with Council to deliver capital works projects and improvements to their facilities.
“Since its inception in 2010, the program has provided over $900,000 towards local sport and recreation facilities through this fund,” Ms Cernovskis said.
In 2021 Council provided South Gambier Football Club with $18,000 under the Major Capital Works Program to assist the installation of a 30kW solar system.
South Gambier Football Club President Wayne Glynn said the support of the Council made the project possible.
“The Sport and Recreation Capital Works Program enabled our club to install a solar system which will benefit the club and the environment for many years. We installed a 30kW solar system which has dramatically reduced our reliance on fossil fuels and significantly lowered our short and long term club running costs” South Gambier Football Club President Wayne Glynn
