A tour of re­gion ahead of bud­get

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

SOM­ER­SET coun­cil­lors toured the re­gion last week to visit cur­rent and prospec­tive in­fra­struc­ture pro­ject sites.

Coun­cil en­gi­neers ac­com­pa­nied coun­cil­lors as they vis­ited sites at Coominya, Lowood, Pren­zlau, Fern­vale, Esk, Too­goolawah, Kil­coy and sur­round­ing ar­eas on Wed­nes­day, April 19.

Dur­ing the full-day tour, coun­cil­lors in­spected spe­cific sites to de­ter­mine which projects should be al­lo­cated fund­ing in the 2017/18 fi­nan­cial year bud­get.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said each year coun­cil­lors toured the re­gion as part of the bud­get process.

“The tours pro­vide a valu­able in­sight into ar­eas be­ing con­sid­ered for work in the next fi­nan­cial year and are an im­por­tant as­pect of bud­get de­lib­er­a­tions,” Cr Lehmann said.
