The North Burnett Regional Council is thankful for over $3 million in Works for Queensland funding
from the Queensland Government since 2019, which has funded a range of important upgrades
to community facilities in the North Burnett.
“This program doesn’t just fund new projects, but also the maintenance and upgrades of existing
infrastructure,” Mayor Chambers said.
“This type of funding is so important to our Council. It provides some capacity to invest in our
regions essential infrastructure, so we can continue working on getting the basics right and
delivering quality essential services to our community like roads, urban water and waste”.
“We would love to see the Queensland Government continue this funding program for regional
Councils, to assist in filling the funding gap for Councils like the North Burnett”.
