The Bendigo council’s decision to shut the Golden Square swimming pool gives priority to their financial needs over the needs of our community.
They want people to make the Kangaroo Flat Aquatic Centre financially viable so they shut down the opposition.
Consider. A school is being built for 500 children right beside our pool. A little walk and a swim will be available to these children in 2014 if council gives us back our pool.
Otherwise, 500 children must be bussed to the more expensive Kangaroo Flat facility which will already be dominated by that community.
We are crying out for common sense.
