Today I met with the Burnett East Local Government Association Cluster (BELGAC) to discuss their weed control strategy and the potential for BCCA to be involved through our Better Burnett project. Local Governments within the BELGAC include Biggenden, Burnett, Isis, Kolan and Miriam Vale Shire Councils and also Bundaberg City Council. BELGAC also receives support from the Burnett Mary Regional Group and us – the Burnett Catchment Care Association.
BELGAC have a challenging and exciting project ahead of them. Project components include information kits, bio-control development and weed demonstration sites. It is the aim of BCCA to work in sync with BELGAC and offer assistance in any way that we can. I hope to keep you posted on how this partnership develops over the coming months.
