Our his­tory cel­e­brated

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Eidsvold on cel­e­brat­ing its 125th year since the first gold rush in the area.

The pro­ces­sion through the town com­mem­o­rated the his­tory.

The horses and wagon, the pack horse drover and the horse and sulky were great re­minders.

The post of­fice­won first prize as this fa­cil­ity de­ter­mined the sta­bil­ity and growth of the town and the school came in sec­ond as the ba­sis of fam­ily and community.

It was a day of his­tory well worth re­mem­ber­ing.

At­tend­ing Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment con­fer­ences, Coun­cil gains much by the con­tacts made and meet­ings ar­ranged.

Coun­cil was able to talk to rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Queens­land Rail about the rail cor­ri­dor and also with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of QR Na­tional.

Keep­ing contact with the Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ter also keeps us in touch with other min­is­ters and de­part­ments.

Coun­cil also took a mo­tion to the con­fer­ence seek­ing gov­ern­ment sup­port for the dairy farm­ers as this in­dus­try is in dan­ger of col­lapse as the price for their prod­uct con­tin­ues to drop.

This mo­tion was sup­ported whole­heart­edly by city and coun­try alike.

Re­cy­cling of rub­bish is an ex­cel­lent­way of re-us­ing ma­te­rial but will also ex­tend the life of waste dis­posal ar­eas.

Many of our dumps have a lim­ited life and any­thingwe can do to re­duce­what goes into the dump area will make them last longer.

Hav­ing at­tended the school awards nights across the re­gion, I con­grat­u­late the schools and students on their achieve­ments and wish them ev­ery suc­cess in the fu­ture.
