Councillor wants report on Howard's sewerage problems
THE Howard division representative has called on the council's chief executive to prepare a report highlighting problems caused by the town's lack of a sewerage system.
Division 1 councillor James Hansen lodged the question on notice in Fraser Coast council chambers last Wednesday.
It followed a series of Chronicle reports raising concerns that overflowing septic systems were presenting a health hazard to residents.
Cr Hansen asked for the report and said: "It has been publicly noted that some areas of Howard are unsuitable for septic systems".
The council has been criticised in the past week after it admitted it did not have a long-term strategy to provide the residents of Howard with sewerage.
Member for Maryborough Anne Maddern said some of her constituents complained of raw sewage in kerbs and backyards.
