Mayor’s new role on river trust

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY mayor Jen­nifer Whit­ney was elected the new chair­per­son of the State Coun­cil of River Im­prove­ment Trusts at an AGM held in Can­non­vale last week. Cr Whit­ney, a mem­ber of both the Don and Whit­sun­day River Im­prove­ment Trusts (WRIT), at­tended the con­fer­ence and said she was “very hum­bled” by the elec­tion.

“I bring to this role a sound un­der­stand­ing of the in­te­gral role that river im­prove­ment trusts across the State play in main­tain­ing the lo­cal river­ine en­vi­ron­ment, sup­port­ing the agri­cul­ture in­dus­try and mit­i­gat­ing po­ten­tial flood re­lated dis­as­ters,” Cr Whit­ney said.
