Ryal Bush Community Centre - unbudgeted expenditure request

Record No: R/20/9/50965

 

Community Facilities Manager – Mark Day was in attendance for this item.

 

Mr Day advised that the purpose of the report was to seek approval for unbudgeted expenditure of up to $5,184.02 from the Ryal Bush community centre reserve.  This is to complete various work required which includes tree maintenance, internal structural work and continuation of planned hall maintenance.
