It's been a busy few months with no sign of slowing down following the delivery of Council's 2016/2017 Budget..
I'm pleased that Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has continued his commitment to residents of the Bracken Ridge ward in this budget. It contains funding for a range of significant amenity improvements including road construction projects, park upgrades, new facilities and ongoing important services that will make sure our community is an even better place.
A particular budget highlight includes funding for a new world-class BMX facility in Fitzgibbon which will be located on the southern side of Telegraph Road to further expand our growing recreational parklands.
This year's budget greatly provides for road rehabilitation and maintenance in addition to greater improvements of our parks and green space. These projects are being scheduled for completion within this financial year and residents who are directly impacted by scheduled works will receive notification prior to their commencement.
