SLSQ to take over Agnes Water surf club lease
THE Agnes Water Surf Lifesaving Club will only offer a junior activities lifesaving program now that its lease has been transferred from the Gladstone Regional Council to Surf Lifesaving Queensland.
Gladstone Regional Council made the decision to transfer the lease at its general meeting yesterday.
Council's Parks and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Graham McDonald said the decision was made due to the club's financial and governance difficulties.
"Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) has supported the Club through a number of unstable periods over the years and will continue to do so," Cr McDonald said.
"The club is still operational as an entity although, in terms of operations it will only provide a junior activities lifesaving program at this stage.
"SLSQ will continue to support the provision of a lifesaving service at Agnes Water Beach until the club can sustain it independently."
SLSQ will now prepare lease transfer documentation for final approval by Council and arrange lodgement with Titles.
