With the 50m Bomaderry pool under threat of demolition, and no plans to replace it, Mr Ward has called for councillors to explain their stance at a public meeting.
Shoalhaven local Allan Lugg chimed in on Twitter, urging Mr Ward to be proactive.
“Stop beating up on the local council,” Mr Lugg said.
“Get them some of the Sydney football stadium rebuild money. Be a partner instead of a protagonist.”
Meanwhile, council’s general manager Russ Pigg defended council’s decision to move forward with a Bomaderry community precinct masterplan that does not include a 50m pool.
"The 25-metre pool will have an additional two lanes moving from six to eight lanes,” he said.
“There will also be a hydrotherapy pool with inclusive access, currently not available in the northern part of the Shoalhaven, a learn to swim pool which will remove congestion from the main pool, a beach entry/play pool and a leisure water facility.”
