Funds for as­sets

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil plan to spend $11.6 mil­lion on their cap­i­tal works pro­gram in the 2014/2015 fi­nan­cial year budget, with $5.7 mil­lion to be soaked up by roads, streets and drainage as­sets.

Mayor Don Waugh said bi­tu­men be­tween Mun­dub­bera-Gayn­dah would be an ex­cel­lent as­set for the re­gion.

Cr Lofty Wendt also said Biggen­den would ben­e­fit, with the ap­proval of a new cabin at the coun­cil-op­er­ated car­a­van park.

“We are full from May to Septem­ber and many of them are re­turnees,” he said. “Al­though the cap­i­tal works fund is not huge, it’s good we can put it to­wards some­thing to help lo­cal in­dus­try.”
