Last week Lord Mayor Graham Quirk delivered Council’s 2018-2019 Budget. I’m pleased to say, the Bracken Ridge Ward has once again been well looked after with funding provided for a range of important projects.

Some of the highlights include more than $1.7m for the construction of new major drainage projects in Bald Hills and Zillmere, more than two dozen roads scheduled for resurfacing, new park facilities, local network improvements and more. It’s these projects and improvements to local amenities that ensure we are making the Bracken Ridge Ward an even better place to live.

Below I’ve listed some of the key inclusions from this year’s Budget and what you can expect to see happening around the Ward over the next twelve months. Keep in mind that residents who are directly affected by planned works will be contacted prior to their commencement.

If there’s something else you would like to see that isn’t on the list, get in contact with me and I’ll ensure it’s on our Budget Wishlist for future consideration!
