Roads seal of ap­proval

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

PROB­A­BLY the best piece of news for the area is the al­lo­ca­tion of State Govern­ment funds to the up­grad­ing and bi­tu­men seal­ing of an ex­tended sec­tion of the Monto–Mt Perry Rd.

The coun­cil has been work­ing with the Main Roads Depart­ment and Deputy Pre­mier Jeff Seeney to ac­cess Roy­al­ties for Re­gions funds for this road.

Min­is­ter Seeney has just con­firmed govern­ment ap­proval for seal­ing a ma­jor sec­tion of the re­main­ing gravel sec­tion of the road.

I sincerely thank Jeff Seeney for his work in ar­rang­ing these funds.

Cr Faye Whelan and I have just at­tended the Na­tional Tidy Towns Awards pre­sen­ta­tion, where Mun­dub­bera was one of the seven state fi­nal­ists who met to de­ter­mine a na­tional win­ner.

A num­ber of sep­a­rate awards were pre­sented and Mun­dub­bera was recog­nised with the top award in the Young Leg­ends cat­e­gory.

Full marks to Mun­dub­bera School for their cre­ative ef­forts and ded­i­ca­tion in util­is­ing waste and mak­ing full use of all avail­able prod­ucts.

Sim­i­larly, the town achieved high com­men­da­tion for part­ner­ing with the BlazeAid work­ers through­out and af­ter the flood­ing.
