Council produces statement of intent for Wide Bay Water

FRASER Coast Council has approved a corporate plan and a statement of corporate intent for Wide Bay Water.

As councillors approved the two documents in Wednesday's council meeting, Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said he remained committed to taking control of WBW.

Cr O'Connell said the council would work with both state MPs and State Government departments to avoid a potential $65 million stamp duty bill.

Cr Phil Truscott said the approval of the two corporate documents would give security to staff at WBW.

Both documents must be produced each year and show expenditure, predicted profits and losses and other factors such as improving the environment and re-use of wastewater.
