MOU with Moama Lions

Murray River Council and the Lions Club of Moama will enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to formalise the management of the Moama Lions Community Village.

The MoU was formally endorsed at council’s ordinary April meeting.

Over a number of decades, the Lions Club have developed the village, constructing and now managing twenty-eight units valued at more than $7 million.

Murray River Council is the owner of the village assets, acting as the custodian of the Village whilst it is under the management of the Lions Club.

The MoU formalises the roles and responsibilities of both parties, with the Lions Club responsible for the day-to-day management of operations, finances and accommodation services.

“It is important that the endeavours and achievements of everyone involved in this hugely successful project is documented for the knowledge of future generations.” Mayor Chris Bilkey said.

“The MOU ensures transparency in the accountabilities shared between our two organisations, and captures the history and success of the project for the benefit and knowledge of the community and councillors.”

“I would like to thank the Lions Club for their ongoing management and development of the village and for working with us to formalise the management arrangements,” Cr Bilkey said.
