The Regina Lawn Bowling Club says it is pleased they now have the opportunity to reduce the costs to run the facility.
Regina City Council was originally planning to cut funding entirely for the club as it looked for ways to find 11-million dollars after provincial funding cuts.
Members of the Regina Lawn Bowling Club made a proposal at a recent council meeting saying they would take on some of the funding responsibility if the city would not cut funding entirely .
Council agreed to the proposal which ultimately saved the club from shutting down, which would have left around 150 bowlers without a facility.
Keith Roney, President of the Regina Lawn Bowling Club says they are planning to put together some ideas before speaking with the city again.
“WE need to put together a committee from our standpoint,” said Roney. “Just to go over what the options may be.”
Roney says the main way to save the city money would be if the club took over the maintenance of the greens them selves .
It currently costs the city around 65-thousand dollars per year to keep the facility up and running.
