“Steve Bernasconi has worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep both assets for community use,” he said.
“The Lemon Tree site is owned by council and TAG, (Tilligerry Art Gallery) now occupies it under licence from PSSC.”
“In the case of the now redundant Tanilba RFS Station, it is owned by the Crown Lands Department.” he stated.
“We have handed it back, changed the locks and NSW Scouts are currently negotiating a leasing agreement on both the building and a parcel of land beside the structure,” he added.
“Steve Bernasconi guided the complex paperwork and mandatory procedures through the process which now sees both sites emerge as great assets for the community,” he said.
“Senior council staff just don’t get the recognition they deserve. Well done Steve!”
