A plan to upgrade lighting at the Alma Oval has been postponed, in a bid to curb council spending. Broken Hill City Council voted last year to go ahead with the project, which was estimated to cost more than $400 000.

Alma OvalBut last night council decided to defer the project. Mayor, Wincen Cuy, said the project will be considered at the 2013/2014 budget. "It's about being financially responsible and this motion puts us in a financially responsible position," he said.

"The lights aren't out of the question, but quite obviously, it depends on council's finances." Mayor Cuy said the decision follows a letter from the New South Wales Government, criticising the council's excessive spending.

"How irresponsible would we be if we go against the department of Local Government when they've actually highlighted a $400 000 to a $600 000 project that we're just going ot build anyway." Councillor Tom Kennedy who voted against the deferral, said he's disappointed with the decision.

"That's a motion that has no bearing, a new council will be in in September, and the new council will decide what it does with finances," he said.

But Mayor Cuy, said even if the lighting project had been approved or considered in the 2012 budget, it could still have be overturned.
