Deputy pre­mier keen to help find so­lu­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

SINCE amal­ga­ma­tion, peo­ple in Eidsvold have been de­mand­ing a boat ramp they can use at Ki­rar Weir. And with Jeff Seeney now on­board, Eidsvold might just get on the wa­ter. “I was un­aware there was still no public ac­cess to the Ki­rar wa­ters,” the Deputy Pre­mier said. The ex­ist­ing ramp was built by Eidsvold Shire Coun­cil with grant money only to find they had built in the ex­clu­sion zone, that is within 100m of the weir wall. The state trans­port depart­ment has is­sued a de­mo­li­tion or­der and so the com­mu­nity has had no wa­ter ac­cess. Mr Seeney said his gov­ern­ment could be “in a po­si­tion to fund such a project in Eidsvold”. “We can work to­gether to pro­vide the fa­cil­ity for visi­tors and the com­mu­nity,” Mr Seeney said.
