Council intends to negotiate a new lease with the Men’s Shed at 17 Errol Street after resolving to end the current lease with MACE in February 2022.

Mayor Cr Tehan said Council had not made the decision lightly.

“Both of these groups mean a lot to our community. This ongoing dispute about this premises detracts from the great community work they do and it’s time to move forward.

“It is Council’s view that this decision honours the original memorandum of understanding.

“Council has worked with each of these respected organisations to try to resolve these longstanding issues. In September, we asked the groups to come to a resolution and they haven’t been able to. Ending the lease arrangement with MACE was a tough decision but one we felt we had to make,” said Cr Tehan.
