Council connect with community over breakfast

TALK of 10 new masterplans from the Western Downs Regional Council has sent business owners talking at the Breakfast at BMO event.

Guest speakers Ross Musgrove, Jodie Taylor, Scott Peut and Graham Cook brought to light previous and current investments council have made into the liveability of the region, including upcoming plans to revamp the main street in Miles, and continued investments in Tara.

Mayor Paul McVeigh told the Dalby Herald it was important to keep stakeholders like our local business owners in the loop about prospective plans for the town.

"The thing we always say about our council is we like to be out here,” Cr McVeigh said.

"We're a part of the community. We're very much a part of the community as a council - we've employed 700 people across the region, and we need to be seen as a part of our community.

"Events like this just make sure that we are in contact with our community.”
