MMS18.1    Mayoral Minute - Power Bill for Safe Shelter


HPERM Ref:       D18/53128




Recommendation (Item to be determined under delegated authority)

That Shoalhaven City Council provide financial support to the Nowra Uniting Church to pay for the electricity bill that was incurred during the homeless trial for Safe Shelter Shoalhaven. The amount $1743.00 be transferred from the unallocated donations budget.




The Nowra Uniting Church kindly opened its doors to operate on a trial basis Safe Shelter Shoalhaven for the homeless over winter. Electricity costs where not considered at the outset of the project and have been incurred to the amount of $1743.00 as the Nowra Uniting Church was carrying out this service on behalf of all people in the Shoalhaven I seek Councils support in paying the account.


Invoices have been submitted to Council that show the average percentage increase of 50% to the Uniting Church Hall during that period.


The air conditioning was the principle reason for increased costs as it improved the comfort for the many volunteers and homeless persons using the shelter.
