GUESTS to the mayor's breakfast were also given a feast of information about the South Burnett Regional Council.

The mayor talked for an hour to 80 guests with most of the time spent on where the road levy was being spent, and why it was implemented.

"We were receiving about 90 calls a day about roads," Mayor Wayne Kratzmann said.

"We had to make a decision - not to fix the roads or we get more revenue."

Mayor Kratzmann highlighted some of the works going on including the night road works planned for Markwell St.

He also discussed the Memerambi court victory, water, planning scheme and state government charges affecting the budget.

The information was comprehensive with only three questions from the audience to end the event.
