Mayor bullish about in­stal­la­tion

Western Times - - BEST OF THE WEST -

VISI­TORS to the Dalby sa­le­yards re­ceived an un­ex­pected wel­come as they ar­rived for sale on Wed­nes­day, March 21.

A new piece of art greeted ven­dors and buy­ers and left peo­ple ques­tion­ing the ori­gins of the bull.

The bull was com­mis­sioned by coun­cil staff mem­bers about two years ago and has seem­ingly been for­got­ten.

Coun­cil­lor Ray Brown says he would in­quirie about how the bull ended up at the sa­le­yards.

“This never came across the Sa­le­yards Com­mit­tee, so I am ask­ing the CEO why it is here,” Cr Brown said.

Mayor Paul McVeigh said there was a ex­pla­na­tion for the bovine sculp­ture.

“Un­for­tu­nately the artist had fallen ill, so that de­layed the project by at least a year,” Cr McVeigh said.
