Binnaway and Dunedoo Pool Upgrades

Upgrades to Binnaway and Dunedoo swimming pools have been completed in time for the start of the swimming pool season. ‚Äč

“The upgrades include installation of pool solar heating systems at both pools, together with BBQ shade shelters and pool inflatables at Binnaway, and a solar blanket to help trap heat in the pool overnight at Dunedoo”, said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Denis Todd. “These improvements will hopefully see these communities utilising the local pools more throughout the season.”

“The upgrades and purchases were nominated by local community groups and the Community Development Coordinators for Binnaway and Dunedoo.”

Cr Todd said “it was great news that Council successfully secured $133,000 in funding under the Drought Communities Programme – Extension for these two projects.”

“Council is very grateful for the assistance of the Federal Government through the Drought Communities Programme – Extension, which has supported communities by providing eligible councils with funding for community projects,” said Cr Todd.

“The pool upgrades at Binnaway and Dunedoo have not only improved the facilities, but the use of local contractors has supported local businesses and communities, giving a boost to the economy in these tough times of drought.”

“The 2019/2020 pool season begins on Saturday 5 October 2019 and finishes on Sunday 29 March 2020, I hope to see all local communities make the most of these great facilities”, concluded Cr Todd.
