From the mayor’s desk

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - – Mayor Don Waugh

IT SEEMS the De­part­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads is close to a de­ci­sion on the fu­ture ten­ure of the rail cor­ri­dor through the re­gion and what will be­come of the build­ings in each of the towns.

Mr Noel Thomp­son, from the de­part­ment, will visit the area on Au­gust 14–15 to talk to in­ter­ested par­ties and give an in­di­ca­tion of the govern­ment’s di­rec­tion.

What­ever the out­come, the groups in­volved de­serve recog­ni­tion for their ideas and de­sire to ini­ti­ate new ways to at­tract vis­i­tors.

The Coal­stoun Lakes com­mu­nity gath­ered on Satur­day for its an­nual Christ­mas in July.

They en­joyed ex­cel­lent food and entertainment.

It is great to see a com­mu­nity join to­gether to raise funds to main­tain the hall and pro­vide an en­joy­able night out.
