Council to discuss future of RSL club
TABLELANDS Regional Council chief executive officer Gary Rinehart has been authorised to have discussions about the future of the Atherton RSL in Railway Lane after the sub-branch went into voluntary receivership this month.
The future of the building, which only opened three years ago, is unknown at this stage, but will likely be sold.
Cr Peter Hodge moved that Mr Rinehart “be authorised to have discussions on behalf of the Tablelands Regional Council, with members of the Atherton RSL and officers of Department of Transport and Main Roads in regard to the future of the Atherton RSL on Railway Lane, Atherton, and report back to council if necessary.”
He said with RSL Atherton entering voluntary administration, it had become “quite urgent to find a solution for their financial future”.
“Selling their building is one option but are pursuing other options. One concept includes making the building more of a community hub.”
Council, the Department of Transport and Main Roads and the RSL sub-branch will meet in the near future for discussions.
