Local contractors were busy at the Deniliquin Town Hall on Wednesday, restoring the exterior of the clock tower.
Deniliquin Council general manager Des Bilske said the works were part of necessary maintenance.
‘‘The contractors are rendering the concrete work around the clock tower,’’ he said.
‘‘The concrete is being patched up to make sure the hall does not deteriorate any further.
‘‘This work is being funded by council.’’
Council has applied for government funding to restore the town hall but has been denied on several occasions.
Most recently was the Federal Coalition’s decision not to honour funding promised for the town hall redevelopment project.
Round five of the federal government’s Regional Development Australia Fund, announced prior to the September election, promised Deniliquin would receive $217,00.
The Labor Government allocated funding to local councils across the country for community projects, however when it came to power the Coalition announced projects not under contract would not be honoured.
Deniliquin Council has paid for these maintenance works from its general fund.
