Street named af­ter sol­dier

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

JA­COB Moerland Cl will be the new name for the road leading to Gayn­dah’s RSL com­plex, fol­low­ing a res­o­lu­tion passed by North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil on Tues­day.

Sap­per Moerland died in Afghanistan on June 7, 2010, when he was 21 years old.

This new name will recog­nise the young sol­dier’s ser­vice to our coun­try. His mum, Sandy Moerland, sup­ported the idea. The cost for the sign was $77, which the coun­cil passed unan­i­mously.
