Fighting lack of sewerage
A LACK of sewerage is holding back Howard and newly re-elected president of the Burrum Chamber of Commerce Bill Gosewisch plans to keep pushing for it this year.
In his 12th year as president, Mr Gosewisch said businesspeople wanted to develop new accommodation to support events such as the Torbanlea Picnic Races but were stymied by the shortage of sewerage.
"We are still developing the trades and service centre, we are still developing various other enterprises up here and pushing hard for it but the main thing that is holding us back is sewerage for the town," he said.
"We cannot build a motel or any-thing else like that."
Mr Gosewisch has suggested the council spend some of the money it would make from the planned sell-off of land for development at Burrum Town on expanding sewerage in Howard which currently only covered part of the business area.
