THE embattled Millicent and District Community Club has again been thrown a lifeline by Wattle Range Council.
The not-for-profit organisation has received financial support in various guises from local government for over 20 years and Tuesday’s monthly council meeting decided this would continue.
After confidential discussions lasting 30 minutes, council resolved to defer outstanding principal repayments on its loan until March next year.
Council deputy chief executive Paul Duka said the then Millicent District Council had provided an initial loan of $400,000 to the club and the loan had been refinanced in 2002 and 2012.
He said the principal debt of the club currently stood at $202,000 and it was $7600 in arrears in its repayments to council.
