The 2016/2017 Whitsunday Regional Council Budget will deliver an range of fundamental infrastructure and community projects which divisional Councillor John Collins says will open doors for the town of Proserpine.
“Our major infrastructure will receive an upgrade with $2.8 million going towards the upgrade of the Sewerage Treatment Plant and over $600,000 for drainage reconstruction in Proserpine which is fantastic,” Cr Collins said.
“Funds have been carried over from the last budget for the establishment of a Water Park in Proserpine which I fully support as it will entice the drive tourism market through Proserpine and will give our young families of the region another choice in recreation,” he said.
“I’ve also been advocating for the extension of the footpath from Faust Street out to the Junior Sporting Complex and this year’s budget will make a start on that project while at Conway Beach a new path from the shelter shed to the toilet block will provide easier access for the elderly and disabled.”

• $2.8 million for Proserpine Sewerage Treatment Plant Upgrade;• $627,362 Main Street drainage reconstruction• $600,000 for Proserpine Water Park• $558,000 for a water main replacement at Camm Road, Mt Julian and Ruge Street and Davey Avenue in Proserpine• $250,000 to deliver the Proserpine Recycled Water Project • $200,000 for the construction of footpaths on Faust Street and the beach park area at Conway Beach
