A $51,000 shortfall in funds needed to connect electronic scoreboards to power supplies was sourced from Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex projects.
The Wanneroo Amateur Football, Kingsway Football and Wanneroo Giants Baseball clubs each received funding for the scoreboards at their Wanneroo Showground and Kingsway bases through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program.
However, the City of Wanneroo reported that installation costs exceeded the grant funding.
The council agreed to transfer $50,847 from allocations to Kingsway projects in May, and noted that administration would seek reimbursement “where appropriate” from the federal grants given to the three clubs.
The football clubs each received a $13,000 grant, while the baseball club received $20,000.
