The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews previously denied having the team in Melbourne due to tight COVID-19 restrictions.
Albury Councillor David Thurley said there were multiple reasons why he voted against allowing Melbourne Storm to come to train on community facilities.
He said his decision to vote against the Storm was based on the lack of concentration on the community and the story of three NRL players breaching coronavirus restrictions when going camping last month.
Mayor Kevin Mack who supported their visit said in a statement that it is not the council's decision whether or not the club can train in Albury but it applies only to the use of facilities managed by Council.
Statement from Albury Mayor Kevin Mack:
Deputy Mayor Amanda Cohn voted against the move and said, "people have given up their own hobbies and sport...some have lost their jobs and business...it is an unacceptable double standard".
Meanwhile, Melbourne Storm boss Dave Donaghy is disappointed and said the team will train on the non-council facility which is their back-up at the Albury Sports Ground.
