  • The 'leaning tower' no longer: Marine Rescue gets reprieve
  • October 22, 2015

IT HAS taken more than a decade of campaigning but Ballina finally has the funding to replace its "leaning" marine rescue tower.

The State Government announced it would commit $215,000 to the project and Ballina Greens MP Tamara Smith said she would contribute a further $200,000 from grant funding.

Ballina Shire Council previously resolved not to put a tender out for construction until the estimated $2.1m cost was fully funded.

Until yesterday, the project was short about $550,000 despite council's $1m contribution, Marine Rescue NSW's $200,000 commitment and the State Government's promise of $350,000 in funding from the Public Reserves Management Fund.
