Expressions of Interest for disposal of Cumberoona set to begin

26 September 2014

AlburyCity will begin the Expression of Interest (EoI) process for the disposal of the PS Cumberoona this weekend.

The public offer process will be advertised on Saturday and submissions are open until Friday 24 October.

Council agreed at its July meeting to begin a public offer process for the disposal of the vessel after an initial EoI search failed to find a suitable operator. Council is now seeking expressions of interest from interested persons, businesses, organisations or community groups for the acquisition of the Cumberoona.

"Council has exhausted all avenues for the operation of the Cumberoona and this is the last available option," AlburyCity's Director of Community and Recreation James Jenkins said. "We're open to all offers and organisations, community groups and individuals with an interest in the vessel are welcome to make a submission."

The process may involve communications with respondents before a final decision on the disposal of the vessel is made, including requesting:

  • presentations from respondents
  • structured interviews with respondents
  • written responses from respondents.
