    Burdekin Shire Council is investigating the illegal dumping of construction waste at Sugar Loaf Hill, Beachmount.

    Mayor Bill Lowis said Council environment and health officers discovered the rubbish at the site, south of the Wunjunga township.

    “The rubbish mostly consists of green waste, concrete blocks, fly screens, shower screen, cut-up concrete tank, delivery truck washout concrete, roofing iron and tiles,” he said.

    “It’s obvious that someone couldn’t be bothered to take the load to the landfill and decided that the old quarry was a good spot to dump their rubbish.

    “This particular site has been used in the past by people to illegally dump their garden waste and concrete there, but it is beginning to get out of hand.”

    Cr Lowis said Council officers were trying to identify who had dumped the items.

    “Illegal dumping such as this shows a total lack of respect for our shire, the environment and our ratepayers, who in the end pay for the clean-up costs,” he said.

    “I hope we can catch who created this mess.”

    The Mayor urged residents who may recognise any of the rubbish to dob in the dumper by calling Council on 4783 9800.

    “If we can catch who did this, Council can recoup the costs involved of cleaning it up and ease the cost burden this sort of behaviour puts on our ratepayers,” he said.

    Illegal dumpers can be fined up to $45,540 and have a conviction recorded against their name.

    The new Giru Skate Park in Brolga Park was completed at the weekend and is open for holiday fun.

    Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said Urban Play Pty Ltd had delivered and constructed the skate park equipment at the site last week.

    “Their team was on site from Thursday through to Saturday erecting the equipment,” he said.

    “I went up on Monday to check it out and it was great to see the local children already making good use of it.”

    Cr Lowis said the skate park was of a similar design to the one in Home Hill.

    “The skate park in Home Hill has proved very popular with the youth,” he said.

    “I hope the youth of Giru enjoy theirs as much.”

    Council is building the skate park in partnership with Wilmar Sugar and the Giru Progress Association.

    The new skate park is positioned between the BBQ shelter and swing set on the western side of Brolga Park.

    Posted Tuesday, 23rd June 2015 in Media Releases

    Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis today delivered a $59 million budget which is focused on cost savings and low debt.

    Mayor Bill Lowis said the total budgeted rates and charges increase compared to last year’s Budget was 3.9 per cent.

    “Like Councils across the nation, Burdekin is burdened by ever-increasing costs and demands,” he said.

    “The freezing of government financial assistance grants, rising electricity costs, insurance and increasing costs of materials are all things our Council has no control over.

    “However, our team is addressing these costs by working smarter and finding savings across the board.

    “Council has made cuts where we can and our Council officers have helped by finding 5 per cent productivity dividends in their departments.

    “We are making savings by doing works ourselves and sourcing competitively priced goods and services.

    “Our debt level is falling. Council will not borrow any funds this financial year and as at June 30, 2016, will have an external debt of $6.5 million. This compares to a debt level 10 years ago of $12.1 million.”

    Cr Lowis said the general rate and waste service charge would each increase 3.5 per cent, the sewerage access charge would increase 5 per cent and the water access charge would increase 4 per cent.

    “All of our funds are balanced or have operating surpluses which help demonstrate Council’s future sustainability,” he said.

    “Our minimum general rate has been kept below the average increase at 3 per cent to $981.”

    Cr Lowis said the average yearly residential rates, based on an average land valuation of $89,238, would increase by $82.68 for the year or $1.59 a week.

    “The 2015-16 Budget includes approximately $44.9 million in operational expenditure,

    “Of this amount about $10.5 million is depreciation and amortisation.

    “Our capital expenditure will be approximately $14.4 million.”

    The Mayor said this was a significant, but prudent, spend in the Burdekin community.

    “Last year I flagged the need for a review of the level of infrastructure assets and levels of service,” he said.

    “I am pleased to say we have not dropped any services, yet our team has been able to provide our community with better service.”

    Some of the major projects include the following:

    • $9.7 million for maintenance and capital works on roads, drainage and reseals.
    • $2.1 million for construction of new waste cell at Kirknie Road Landfill.
    • $1.9 million for flood damaged restoration works approved under Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements and funded by the State and Federal Governments.
    • $1.2 million for sewer relining and manhole refurbishment program
    • $500,000 for water projects
    • $520,000 in community support
    • $460,000 to complete Stage 2 of the Burdekin Rural Multi-Tenant Service Centre at the Burdekin PCYC
    • $335,000 for the development of the Ayr Industrial Estate
    • $250,000 for major drainage schemes
    • $225,000 for Ayr Aerodrome electrical upgrade
    • $180,000 to refurbish cabins, upgrade power heads and re-roof the ablutions block at Council’s Burdekin Cascades Caravan Park
    • $85,000 for refurbishment of ablutions block at Home Hill Caravan Park
    • $75,000 for Burdekin Memorial Hall
    • $50,000 to upgrade playground equipment at Coutts Park, Ayr

    Burdekin Shire Council will spend more than $50,000 supporting local events in the next financial year, according to Mayor Bill Lowis.

    “Council had put aside $32,000 for events funding and another $20,000 in in-kind support, which covers the cost of our employees setting up for events with bins, signage and the like,” he said.

    “Our Community Development team also have budgeted $50,000 toward the establishment of the Community Hub which is based on the Burdekin Theatre, Burdekin Library Ayr and surrounds.

    “Council is continuing to support tourism in the region by providing $8000 to the Burdekin Tourism Association and $15,000 toward the publication of the Bountiful Burdekin magazine.

    “We have also put aside $16,000 to upgrade signage, advertise and participate in expos where we can sell the benefits of living in our shire to residents in Townsville.”

    Cr Lowis said Council also had $12,000 in standing donations to community organisations and $7500 in sporting grants.

    Burdekin Shire Council will continue to target aquatic weeds in the Shire’s waterways using a $35,000 grant.

    Mayor Bill Lowis said Council would receive $35,000 annually from NQ Dry Tropics until 2016/17.

    “I thank NQ Dry Tropics for their support of Council’s aquatic weed clearing program,” he said.

    “This funding is vital to keeping our waterways clear of aquatic weeds such as Salvinia, Water Hyacinth, Water Lettuce and Hymenachne.”

    Cr Lowis said Council had also allocated $21,000 to maintain adequate beach access for residents.

    “This money will go towards improving beach access points and dune protection signage at Alva, Wunjunga township and Beachmount,” he said.

    “Our beaches and their surrounds are well loved by our residents who use the access for fishing and recreation.

    “It is Council’s responsibility to ensure these areas are protected so future generations can also enjoy them.”

    A number of Burdekin parks will receive upgrades next financial year, according to Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis.

    Cr Lowis said $30,000 would be spent refurbishing the public amenities at Lions Park in Home Hill.

    “This is the first lot of public amenities you arrive at when you enter Home Hill from the North and with its positioning near the Lions Home Hill Diorama gets used quite a bit,” he said.

    “Coutts Park in Ayr, will receive new playground equipment with a planned $50,000 upgrade.

    “Council has also allocated $45,000 in the parks and gardens budget to erect a shade structure over the existing columbarium at the Home Hill Cemetery.

Lost and Found Animals

  • Animals in the Council Pound

    Council publishes details of all animals that have been surrendered, impounded, or left at the pound.

    Due to the number of animals that we see each week, we are only able to hold animals for 3 working days.

    If you have lost an animal, or if you would like to adopt an animal from our pound, please contact our Animal Control Officers via the Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.
