Rehab up in the air
MOIRA Shire councillors did not approve the proposed Brookfield drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre on Monday night, in a very close vote.
However, it is expected to come back before council at next month’s ordinary meeting, as councillors did not formally refuse the application.
Councillors were split in their decision over the controversial planning application, which ended up in a tied vote with four in favour and four against.
Taking it to the feds
NUMURKAH Fire Brigade volunteers will continue to protect the community, despite frictions between the CFA and United Firefighters Union.
Numurkah fireys Peter Bilston, Kevin Lucas and John Oudeman joined around 160 District 22 volunteers rallying outside a federal candidate’s forum in Mooroopna last Wednesday night.
Purples fall again
NATHALIA suffered its second consecutive loss on Saturday, going down to sixth placed Rumbalara by three points at Nathalia.
The Purples are still on top of the ladder after Finley suffered a 45 point loss to Moama, but the two consecutive losses will be of great concern to the Purples premiership defence.
