BALLINA Shire's councillors are deciding right now whether to grant approval for Ballina's only indoor swimming pool as they gather for their monthly ordinary meeting.

The Northern Star's Ballina reporter, Rebecca Lollback, will be posting updates from the meeting on Twitter (she will be posting as The Northern Star), meaning you can follow the meeting live here on our website.

Among the other issues up for discussion at today's meeting are:

Whether to allow the Shelly's on the Beach cafe to be demolished and rebuilt;

Whether to wind up a trial of a dog on-leash area at The Serpentine; and

The awarding of an $11 million tender for a recycled water distribution scheme, which would have Ballina residents watering their gardens with recycled water.

Keep an eye on the Twitter feed below from 9am to follow the meeting.
