From City of Ballarat Director People and Communities Neville Ivey:
The City of Ballarat has responsibility for the maintenance at Black Hill mountain bike trails.
There are currently discussions being held between the City of Ballarat and Club Mud concerning prioritising maintenance and other works at the Black Hill facility.
City of Ballarat's Sport & Active Living and Parks teams work collaboratively to support the facility.
The provision of drinking fountains at the top of the hill is planned for installation this financial year.
The Black Hill masterplan includes a number of other elements such as toilets and BBQ facilities. These could be considered as part of future council budgets.
