Cr Rogerson - Exciting budget for Eumundi
  • Saturday 19 July 2014

Council’s 2014/15 budget was recently announced and it includes some exciting opportunities in and around Eumundi. Important stormwater management works will be undertaken on Memorial Drive ($200,000) and upgrades to the playground and landscaping on Dick Caplick Way will also continue ($135,000).

The Eumundi Aquatic Centre will also undergo some important renewal and replacement works in the main pool ($101,000), the 25m pool ($55,000) and the Learn to Swim Pool ($25,000). 

I’m really pleased that these important works will receive the necessary funding to go ahead and I look forward to their delivery.

RADF grants now open

If you’re a professional artist or arts worker, consider applying for a grant through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). The latest major round of RADF is now open and offers up to $10,000 in funding for concept, skills and career development.

Visit council’s website for eligibility criteria or contact a RADF liaison officer for assistance – call 5475 7272 or email Applications close September 1.

Garbage collection times may change

With the recent changeover of council’s waste collection contractor, the time your rubbish bins are emptied may change following a review of the service.

Most households’ collection days will remain the same but the time may change - with some moving from early morning to afternoon collections and vice versa.

You can obtain more information by phoning Council’s contact centre on 5475 7277 or visiting

Rounding off for now, Rogo.
