A tour of region ahead of budget
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.
