There's no doubt the Roxy Theatre is one of the heritage jewels of the MIA, and the wider Riverina.
Talk to anyone about old heritage theatres in regional NSW and the Roxy is used as a prime example.
Leeton Shire Council has been entrusted to spend taxpayers' money on a project to renovate and revitalise the Roxy.
It's an incredibly important project for Leeton.
It's why we took the time to put some scrutiny on a recent real estate deal by the council.
The deal is about providing more room to be used by the theatre but council weren't prepared to reveal the cost.
Considering it's our money which has been spent - we asked those questions and we got the answers that you were looking for.
It's another timely reminder of the role The Irrigator plays in Leeton's community, one which we've played for over 100 years, it's not just about charitable causes or who scored a century in cricket.
We are here to ensure there's effective scrutiny which is why it's worth subscribing to support original journalism that you can trust.
