PUBLIC MEETINGS IN THE FRASER COAST MEDIA RELEASE

Have your say on proposed new Local Laws
The proposed Local Laws for the Fraser Coast are not set in concrete, Fraser Coast Mayor Mick Kruger said.
“The Council wants residents to have a look at the proposed new local laws and let us
know what they think – especially if they think there should be changes.”
“Just because the proposed new local laws are on public display it does not mean that
they have been adopted.
“If residents think there should be a change then they should make a submission.
Submissions can be made in writing or on-line from the Council website.
The local laws and subordinate laws local laws set out how Council will deal with
everyday issues such as conducting meetings, animal management, reserves, facilities, roads and parking.
“We will replace 81 existing local laws and 81 subordinate local laws developed by our predecessor councils with six Local Laws,” Cr Kruger said.
“Council used model local laws developed by the state government in 2009 as the
starting point to develop the local laws that are on display.”
Copies of the local laws and subordinate local laws are available from Council’s libraries and Customer Service Centres in Tiaro, Maryborough and Hervey Bay or can be downloaded from the Council’s webpage www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au.
