Rifle club adds voice to concern
CHILDERS Rifle and Pistol Club president Larry Dunks has added his voice to concern over Bootharh Rd.
Mr Dunks made it clear he did not want to attack Bundaberg Regional Council because he said it had done great work both at the site and for the club.
“The problem is it’s been a patch-up job every time,” he said.
“Council have been great. They’ve always been quick to fix it over the years, but they have to stop patching it and just redo it.”
A major shoot in two weeks will see shooters from across the Wide Bay descend on the Isis club.
This is on top of the three local shoots per week, including the newly opened air pistol range.
Mr Dunks said it would be an expensive job and would take a considerable amount of time to finish, but admitted he would like to see a plan for the road.
Isis River resident Frank Harris started a petition to lobby the council for a road upgrade last week and has almost 100 signatures.
Councillor Tony Ricciardi told Town & Country last week more than $60,000 had been spent on the road since 2012.
