The annual Lake Macquarie Games have won a last-minute bid to go ahead, with plans to scrap them over turned by council last night.
Council had proposed to end the games and re-direct the reported $89, 000 funding into other sporting assistance programs.
This comes after a prepared report criticised the games’ application procedures and time span.

However, Cr LAURIE COGHLAN said the report had inaccuracies.

“No I thought the report wasnt what we’d hoped for, and showed many written inaccuracies and many assumptions that weren’t true,” he said.

He also stated the budget for the Games had been exaggerated by $50, 000.
