Disability support service GenU and Colac Otway Shire Council are in discussions about the future of Colac’s Botanic Cafe on the Lake.

The council said yesterday that GenU had advised that it would continue to open the Botanic Café over summer after its decision not to renew a long-term lease on the council-owned site.

Development and community services general manager Ian Seuren said the council had positive discussions with GenU and was pleased that negotiations had resulted in GenU continuing to use the café.

“Council has been very happy with the relationship with GenU and the service they have provided to the community; we thought the extension of trading hours to open the café over the weekend was a great improvement to the business,” Mr Seuren said.
