Final leg of council listening tour to be held tonight

SOUTH Burnett Regional Council has declared this year's listening tour a success as it prepares to hold the final session tonight.

Council CEO Mark Pitt was impressed with the tour in his first year of being involved, and said he was confident residents appreciated the way council responded to their requests.

"Because the customer service staff are there on the night, the requests can go straight in the system,” Mr Pitt said.

Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Rob Fitz-Herbert, who attended the Kingaroy event, encouraged residents to attend the remaining sessions.

"It's a great opportunity to ask questions,” Mr Fitz-Herbert said.

Mr Pitt said while there were some areas of common interest between each community, they all had their differences.

"A lot of the discussion is about roads and rates,” he said.

Mr Pitt said once all sessions were completed, council would put together a report which would include attendance figures and the number of requests received from each location.

"We'd like to put together a report with all the frequently asked questions and our responses,” Mr Pitt said.

He said the turnout at all the events had been positive.

"We had great improvement on attendance in Kingaroy from last year,” he said.

The final session on the tour will be held in Proston.

"I would think we will discuss the flying foxes situation in Proston,” Mr Pitt said.
