The sports precinct project's third stage of up-
grades will include converting the centre's squash
courts into a gym, and the installation of a run-
ning track for Waikerie Little Athletics.
Mr Tol said quotes were being sought for both
sets of works in the hopes of starting on them by
the end of the year.
"There'll certainly be some elements that need
to be done early next year," he said.
"We're still hoping to have everything done by
the end of February."
Council has committed $250,000 to the second
and third stages of sporting precinct upgrades,
while the Rotary Club of Waikerie provided $15,000
and the Waikerie Sports Precinct Management

The Federal Government has contributed
$441,272 as part of the Regional Development Aus-
tralia Fund, and the Office of Recreation and Sport
is delivering $350,000 to the project.
