FULL STORY

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council has endorsed progressing a $6.7 million sewerage project in Howard.

At their meeting in Maryborough on Wednesday the councillors unanimously endorsed a report to build a sewerage network in the rural town to facilitate future development.

While the project will not provide a sewerage network for existing Howard residents, it will allow 114 new commercial premises to join the network after a new $4.4 million treatment plant is built.

The council will push for 50% of the project to be funded by the State Government.
