Congratulations to the Jandowae Business and Community Group for organising the Year Ahead Dinner last night at the Jandowae Golf Club. President Celeste Nelson and Mayor Paul McVeigh provided both an update on last years' achievements for Jandowae and exciting upcoming plans for the town. The dinner was a highlight too — locally produced beef, pork and lamb went down a treat with guests!

You've heard the news — Council will be offering free parking down Dalby's CBD for the first time in 50 years. After comprehensive consultation with the local business community, the 204 parking meters in the town centre will be discontinued from Monday 22 July. But what happens if long-term parkers congest the main street, leaving no spaces for local shoppers? Don't worry, we heard you loud and clear. Council staff will continue to monitor and enforce time limits on vehicles, with short-term parking available from 15 minutes up to two hours. Expect to see new signage and footpath and paving repairs completed before Christmas too.
