A HERITAGE listed Maryborough pool has a bright future, after receiving $2 million funding for urgent works.
Central Goldfields Shire chief administrator Noel Harvey said the council had been advocating for the project for more than two years.
Mr Harvey said he was thrilled to hear the Maryborough Outdoor Pool would receive urgent attention.
"With a series of Council funded improvement works set to commence this week, this funding will complement this project and mean we can keep the pool operational for years to come," Mr Harvey said.
The State government announced the funding on Tuesday, as part of a building works package.
The shire endorsed a draft Maryborough Municipal Olympic Complex Conservation Management Plan in May 2018, which gave a assessment of the complex and a recommended staged plan for works.
