Mitchell Shire Council Says...

Mitchell has a municipal population of 46,082 people who made 187,831 visits to aquatic facilities during 2019/20 financial year. Visitation increased in 2019/20 after the low that occurred during 2018/19 financial year which was caused by the closure of the Kilmore Leisure Centre Pool for repair works. This increase is despite the impact of cooler summer months, and Pandemic related closures.

Mitchell Shire Council Says...

From 2020, this indicator replaced two previous indicators: 'Cost of indoor aquatic facilities' and 'Cost of outdoor aquatic facilities'. Cost reductions were a result of salary savings that came about due to closures related to the Pandemic.
