Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA is on a short­list to host a Queens­land Coun­try Rugby League game in July and po­ten­tial up­grades to Archer Park could al­low for fur­ther op­por­tu­ni­ties in the fu­ture.

The re­sults of an Archer Park and Sport and Recre­ation meet­ing through the coun­cil were re­leased in the Jan­uary meet­ing and out­lined ideas and ben­e­fits.

Some of the up­grades are to fa­cil­i­tate bring­ing Archer Park up to Queens­land Rugby League As­so­ci­a­tion reg­u­la­tions and could open up fur­ther op­por­tu­nity for the venue.

Up­grades to the light­ing sys­tem will help to bring Archer Park up to reg­u­la­tion while field qual­ity is al­ready up to stan­dard.

Some of the other sug­ges­tions in­clude kitchen up­grades, with fund­ing ap­pli­ca­tions set for 2017, along with a planned sur­veil­lance sys­tem.

All up, 11 op­tions were ac­tioned at the meet­ing.

Di­vi­sion three coun­cil­lor Faye Whe­lan chaired the meet­ing of the Archer Park Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee on De­cem­ber 5 along with the coun­cil sport and recre­ation of­fi­cer and mem­bers of var­i­ous sport­ing groups.

North Bur­nett Coun­cil sport and recre­ation of­fi­cer, Lu­cas Bell, is tasked with over­see­ing a ma­jor­ity of the ac­tions out­lined by the coun­cil in­clud­ing fund­ing al­lo­ca­tion and ap­pli­ca­tions.

The next meet­ing is sched­uled for Wed­nes­day, March 1 from 7.30pm at Archer Park and will close at 9pm.

The coun­cil said up­grad­ing Archer Park to a re­gional qual­ity sport­ing fa­cil­ity would al­low more ma­jor sport­ing events and would be a great as­set.
