Emergency crews scoured Lake Ellesmere last night for a group of missing boaties, but one was reluctant to be rescued.

A Fire Service spokesman said crews helped police to locate five male boaties who had been reported missing about 12.30am yesterday.

Three were quickly recovered.

However, when the fourth man was found he ''refused to come in''.

A helicopter was called in to help locate the fifth man, who was finally found about 2am.

No serious injuries were reported.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
