Burial Site Identification Numbers – Mundubbera
On Thursday 19 January 2023, the installation of burial site identification numbers commenced in Mundubbera. This work is part of a project which will see all burial sites within Council managed cemeteries with a monument or plinth installed, be fitted with an identification number. This will be an ongoing project that will continue throughout the year. Currently we do not have a scheduled completion date. The identification number will help identify burial sites with ease and will correspond with our cemetery online database Chronicle, which can be viewed at https://map.chronicle.rip/.
Glencoe Road Resheeting Project
Council have been successful in obtaining funding from Building Better Regions Fund Round 4, to upgrade approximately 10km of Glencoe Road, Monto, between the intersections of Foleys Gully Road and Camboon Road.
These works commence from 24 January 2023, creating jobs for Council and contractors within the North Burnett. Completion of the project is expected by May 2023, weather permitting. Council advises to expect delays during these works and urges residents to consider an alternative route, if possible and adhere to all signage that is in place.
