Coun­cil cuts cash

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Mayor Don Waugh has com­mit­ted to in-kind sup­port for North Bur­nett com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and events, but cash grants will be brought to an end.

The de­ci­sion was made at this week’s North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil budget meet­ing.

Cr Waugh said the coun­cil would still pro­vide in-kind sup­port, such as pro­vi­sion of ex­tra waste bins at lo­cal shows.

Com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions could also ap­ply for state or federal govern­ment grants for fi­nan­cial help.
