A NEW Ballina Marine Rescue tower is guaranteed $550,000 from the NSW Government, Ballina MP Don Page announced yesterday.

The announcement has renewed hopes that construction on the tower might start early this year after a previous, unsuccessful appeal for funding from the Department of Police and Emergency Services put the project on ice.

The Public (Crown) Reserves Management Fund came to the rescue, providing $350,000 cash plus an additional $200,000 low-interest loan to Ballina Shire Council.
