Town of Bassendean agrees to compensate soccer club

THE Town of Bassendean will compensate the Bassendean Caledonian Soccer Club following a series of break-ins to its clubrooms at Jubilee Reserve this year.

Club recreation and culture manager Salvatore Siciliano received the full support of the council with the item passing through and the club set to receive about $8000 in compensation.

The club, which has a lease agreement with the Town, experienced a high number of break- ins during the 2015 soccer season and damage to its doors, roller shutters, club safe and bar area.

Under the officer recommendation, councillors agreed to the one-off contribution, which would also include waiving the cost of three monthly instalments totalling $1726.55 until March 31.
