Mayor's Column - Wednesday 22 March Mayor's Column - Wednesday 22 March

There has been some commentary recently around the financial position of Council. I can advise that Council is very fortunate in that we are in a very strong and responsible financial position. With a growing asset base, reduced debt and more than adequate reserves, Gympie Regional Council (GRC) is better placed financially than the majority of Councils in Queensland.

Councils face financial pressures as all governments do. Our Council works hard to maintain the balance between financial responsibility and managing requests from residents whilst maintaining current service delivery standards and providing facilities which improve the liveability of the region.

It is also important to recognise that we have delivered the two lowest rate rises in Council’s history whilst providing major projects like the world class Gympie Aquatic Recreation Centre and the Mary Valley Rattler project which will bring jobs, visitors and business to our Region.

Council continues to advocate to both the State and Federal governments to attract additional funding for important projects in this region. This is the ‘free money’ I have previously referred to. If this funding is not secured by GRC it will be given to other Queensland Councils.  Projects that have benefited from this type of funding include the  Mary Valley Rattler as well as important road, bridge and facility upgrades right across this region.

Our Council is in a good position financially and we are benchmarking on target or better than is required by the Auditor General’s office. We remain focused on remaining fiscally responsible and sustainable well into the future. 

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor

Noosa Road, Tandur – Bitumen Sealing


Council has allocated funding in the 2016/17 financial year to extend the bitumen sealing of Noosa Road, at Tandur, as shown in the plan of work overleaf.


Works proposed

The project will extend the bitumen seal of Noosa Road by approximately 500 metres, up to and including the Madill Road intersection. The finished road will be to a 7.0 metre wide, two lane sealed standard.

The work will include:

  • vegetation clearing and earthworks
  • stormwater drainage
  • road pavement and
  • bitumen sealing

Council endeavours to minimise disturbance of established vegetation on its projects where possible.


Traffic management

During construction property accesses may be affected for short durations. Council officers will contact residents, where relevant, to discuss timing for access if work is likely to impact entrances. Your patience during construction is appreciated. Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of all road users.



Construction is expected to commence in early 2017, subject to weather.
