Driving force of our region
AFTER speaking with candidates for the Queensland Young Rural Ambassador, I commend them on their determination to promote and drive the future of primary industries in this State.
To see the concern and passion these young people have for their country is extremely refreshing and indicates confidence for the future.
In recognition of the extremely valuable and selfless service given to the district by Dr Henry Ung, the council will host a reception at the Town Hall on Wednesday May 15 at 5.30pm to show appreciation to him and his family.
Members of the public are cordially invited to attend.
Please advise Vanessa on 4160 3560 if you wish to attend.
While many roads in the region have had work done to allow access, it may be a little time before major work is attended to.
He council is in the process of allocating contracts and work should start by the end of June.
Besides roadwork, there is major work on water, sewage and bridges.
The State Government is requesting that work be completed as soon as possible and the council will ensue that contracts given will pursue that aim.
One area that has come to the fore clearly since the floods is the contribution given by that magnificent band working under the banner of BlazeAid.
Not enough can be said about the help given to farmers in the clean-up and fences restored over the period since the floods.
Another group Aussie Helpers can be included with them and, on behalf of the people of the North Burnett, I sincerely thank you for the time you have spent in our region and wish you every best wish for the future.
