FROM THE MAYOR’S DESK

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

THERE is no doubt we have some ex­cel­lent young ath­letes in the re­gion and there are av­enues open for them to reach their full po­ten­tial.

I hap­pened to be in Kin­garoy on Satur­day to see the clash be­tween North­ern Pride and Cen­tral Crows.

We were ably rep­re­sented by Daw­son Cross from Mun­dub­bera rep­re­sent­ing Cen­tral Bur­nett Brumbies in the Un­der-16s.

Daw­son played an ex­cel­lent game, and full credit should go to the peo­ple who put so much time and ef­fort into keep­ing th­ese clubs op­er­at­ing.

It is very nec­es­sary to recog­nise the land­hold­ers in the North Bur­nett who do such a great job main­tain­ing their prop­er­ties and con­trol­ling pests that threaten to over­whelm them.

Coun­cil can as­sist to some de­gree and BMRG helps out with sprays and equip­ment, but it is the land­holder who bears the brunt.

Lee Har­vey is the coun­cil of­fi­cer who is al­ways avail­able to help.

Of­fi­cers from the Fed­eral and State gov­ern­ments will join with our peo­ple to record road-dam­aged ar­eas and cost to re­pair them.

We are still hop­ing to run the op­er­a­tion with our plant and equip­ment.

At this stage emer­gent work has been ef­fected to keep roads open.

We wel­come new peo­ple to our towns over the cit­rus sea­son and hope they en­joy their stay.

It is es­sen­tial, how­ever, for over­seas vis­i­tors to work with us and utilise the fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided to make the most of their stay.

I am al­ways avail­able to dis­cuss any mat­ters and help where pos­si­ble.
