Mov­ing for­ward

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

I WRITE this let­ter in re­la­tion to the coun­cil de­ci­sion to ap­prove the pig­gery as per the ap­pli­ca­tion from the Jarvis fam­ily.

I would like to con­grat­u­late the Jarvis fam­ily on this de­ci­sion to make this com­mit­ment to their fu­ture and to the farm­ing com­mu­nity as a whole.

It is also in­ter­est­ing in the lat­est edi­tion of your paper, six people from var­i­ous walks of life made com­ment about ris­ing elec­tric­ity costs.

Can this project be the an­swer for this com­mu­nity?

The Jarvis de­vel­op­ment is not go­ing to hap­pen overnight.

It will no doubt be a struc­tured oper­a­tion.

So too, the process de­scribed can be con­structed in mod­u­lar style to al­low ex­ten­sions as and when it is needed.

So to the Monto com­mu­nity as a whole, do not be quick to con­demn.

At this time, de­vel­op­ment in pri­mary in­dus­tries is a mat­ter of ex­treme im­por­tance.

In the early years of 2000 for­ward, through clo­sure of key in­dus­tries in our district stripped this area of $100mil­lion in dis­pos­able in­come.

So far, no vis­i­ble govern­ment as­sis­tance has been forth­com­ing.

In fact, our ser­vices con­tinue to be slowly eroded.

Now is the time for this com­mu­nity to stand firm and work with the Jarvis fam­ily to make this de­vel­op­ment a suc­cess.

I of­fer these com­ments in the in­ter­ests of com­mu­nity unity and again in con­grat­u­la­tions to the Jarvis fam­ily. Dolores M. Fowler,
