LGAQ’s Battleplan for Queensland Local Communities Announced

May 20, 2020 | Front Page Feature, News

North Burnett Regional Council has joined forces with other Queensland councils and the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) to present a Battleplan to the Queensland Government, designed to see the local and state economy get up and running again.

“Council put forward projects which included replacing timber culverts, undertaking swimming pool upgrades, road upgrades, playground replacements and community hall upgrades to name a few, as these are all projects that can be underway in a very short period, and will generate direct and indirect local jobs” Mayor Chambers said.

“I can’t stress enough how vital this funding is for our community. We now await formal notification of our funding allocation under this announcement and which projects have been selected.  We look forward to getting on with the job of undertaking these projects to assist our community recovery”. Mayor Chambers continued.

LGAQ CEO Greg Hallam said “this shows the power of governments working together, it shows pragmatic and decisive leadership and importantly puts Queensland communities at the centre of decisions that will impact their lives.”

“Council works collaboratively where ever we can in order to get the best outcomes for our region.  Through these challenging times the need to unite is more important than ever,” Mayor Chambers said.
