Toowoomba Regional Council’s Deputy Mayor and Chair of the Infrastructure Committee Cr Carol Taylor said Council would reconstruct a 2.2-kilometre section of the road starting at Borges Bridge, south of Grants Road, to near Grundy Road. “Construction is expected to be completed prior to Christmas 2019, weather permitting, and Council will seek to minimise any impacts on the winter harvest,” she said.   “Following consultation with property owners, residents and the wider community, and factoring in time, cost and safety, Council has decided the best option is to close the road for the duration of the roadworks construction. “Signage will be in place to assist road users and Council urged road users to obey all traffic signage for their own safety and the safety of road construction workers.” Council will seek to minimise construction impacts and thanks the community for their patience and co-operation during these works.

Council to implement animal inspection program

Environment and Community portfolio leader Cr Joe Ramia said the program led to an increase in registrations last year and was hopeful this trend would continue. “Residents who have pets need to be responsible and unfortunately unless there is some form of deterrent then some dog owners will continue to avoid paying registration fees. “This program should be treated as a warning that there will be zero tolerance for unregistered dogs and cats and dogs that have not been microchipped.” The Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008 (the Act) requires all dog owners within Queensland to register their pets with the relevant local government.
