THE Mahogany Creek community is being given a further opportunity to put their case forward for the retention of Mahogany Creek Hall.
Demolition of the hall was originally included in Shire of Mundaring's Rates and Services proposal to minimise rate increases by reducing and ceasing some services.
At the Shire's Special Council meeting on Wednesday 19 July, Councillors agreed (11/1) that no action on the proposed demolition of the hall would be taken before 24 January 2018.
Shire President David Lavell said the community would have the opportunity to present a business case to the Shire by 22 December.
"The business case will have to demonstrate how the community will take on full responsibility for the hall, including responsibility for managing and maintaining the Hall and all the costs associated with the operation, maintenance and capital upgrades of the Hall," Cr Lavell said.
Business cases are to be presented to the Shire by close of business on 22 December in order for a report to be considered by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 23 January 2018.
If no business cases are submitted, the demolition of the Hall will start as soon as practicable after 23 January 2018.
