Ma­jor­ity want rose to stay put

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE ma­jor­ity of peo­ple at last week’s com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion forum, or­gan­ised by the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil, were of the opin­ion the Biggen­den Rose was in the per­fect spot.

But the coun­cil’s se­nior tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer, Eric Sturgess, said the rose was not in the right place.

“I wouldn’t be do­ing my job with work­place, health and safety if I didn’t bring up these is­sues,” Mr Sturgess said.

“Any is­sues bought to my at­ten­tion need to be looked at and rec­ti­fied.

“But it is clear the ma­jor­ity want the rose to stay where it is.”

In the com­ing days, an­other piece of art, a sub­stan­tial bot­tle tree, again the work of Craig Nel­son and funded through RADF fund­ing, will be placed in the vicin­ity of the RV Park en­trance.

All at the forum agreed this was the most suit­able po­si­tion.

Coun­cil­lor Rob­bie Radel said if it was placed in the right place, peo­ple tak­ing pho­tographs of it would have Mt Walsh in the back­ground of their photo.

As­set Ser­vices man­ager Justin Kronk and his team will now take all sug­ges­tions on board.

“They will come up with a risk as­sess­ment and what op­tions are avail­able,” Mr Sturgess said.

“It is fan­tas­tic a com­mu­nity is so pas­sion­ate about its town.”
