Web­ster ad­justs

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

What are you most proud of achiev­ing over the past year?

I would like to think a closer work­ing re­la­tion­ship with the com­mu­nity.

How do you feel the past 12 months have gone?

The year has gone very quickly, and our fo­cus has been to im­prove the road net­work. This is a chal­lenge for us and the com­mu­nity be­cause we are a large coun­cil area with a limited amount of re­sources.

What were your big­gest chal­lenges faced dur­ing your first year in coun­cil? Both pro­fes­sion­ally and per­son­ally?

I think for me was the ad­just­ment from how lo­cal gov­ern­ment was when I was Mayor of Eidsvold to now. I per­son­ally be­lieve that coun­cil­lors should be more in­volved

What are your pri­or­i­ties for the next three years?

The most im­por­tant thing to rate pay­ers is the ba­sics. Im­prove the qual­ity of the roads to al­low for B-Dou­bles wher­ever pos­si­ble. To pro­vide a town cen­tre they can be proud of that will en­cour­age trav­ellers to stop.

What have been the big­gest sur­prises of the past 12 months?

How a di­verse group of peo­ple can come to­gether with a com­mon aim to work for the bet­ter­ment of our com­mu­ni­ties.

Coun­cil­lor Peter Web­ster.
