Mayor's Column - Wednesday December 13, 2017 Mayor's Column - Wednesday December 13, 2017

We’ve spoken a lot about the project, and the weather hasn’t always been on our side however we are putting the finishing touches on the ‘Sands’ as part of the River to Rail Trail project which has been funded by the State Government's Works for Queensland program. From Friday we are opening up the ‘Sands’ end of the trail and I would encourage you to head down and take a look.

The River to Rail project, like many others is about improving the livea...bility of our region and providing outdoor recreational opportunities and spaces. Now we are in the school holidays, the ARC is another council project which will be visited by many, a state of the art facility which can be enjoyed by all.

This Saturday the Rattler Railway Company is having a family open day - this is another major project which will deliver for our community. You may have heard a lot about this particular project so head down and have a look for yourself at the work that is being done.

There are at times questions raised about these and other projects. With any major project, we know that there can be challenges along the way, however the benefits of these projects outweigh the challenges as they will continue to deliver social and economic outcomes to our community for generations to come.

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor
