Call for Options Paper for VIC Service Penneshaw
Thursday, 18 April 2019
Following conversations with the current and the previous Council, initiated by Tourism KI (TKI), regarding the urgent need to address future funding shortfalls a crunch point has been reached. There is no guaranteed future funding resulting in the TKI board loosing critical staff and having to close the doors of the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) in Penneshaw.
Historically the Council contributed funds towards the operation of the visitor information centre until approximately 2010 when this arrangement ceased. Acknowledging the importance of visitor information centre functions and in the absence of any viable alternative, TKI continued to manage this function. This was undertaken with the view to obtaining future financial support from council for the performance of this function. This has to date, been unsuccessful.
