THE lint strainer has been replaced at the Kingaroy Swimming Pool and will replace and commission the new pump in August.

This replacement will ensure the filtration system and pump will be running efficiently for the new pool season.


CONTRACTORS have installed a new sub floor ventilation at the Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery to reduce moisture levels and improve the air flow under the building.

The building is receiving ongoing monitoring and treatment programs after experiencing termite outbreaks.

Through reducing the moisture levels and improving air flow, the new floor will help eliminate any suitable conditions for termites.


SOUTH Burnett Regional Council's property section are working with electrical engineers to finalise the specifications for upgrading the electrical switch board at the Lady Bjelke-Petersen Community Hospital.

The council have installed new water lines and increased the water flow to the theatre.


PROPERTY and IT council workers are collaborating to conduct a pilot project on the use of drones for asset management.

The drones will assist in photographing the roof condition and any defects and penetrations into the roof, such as air condition units.

This technology will assist the council with understanding maintenance requirements in the future.

Using drones for assessment would save the council time and money by reducing the need to hire elevated platforms to access roofs.
