“The meeting was very positive. Robbie really appreciates our community’s concerns regarding flying fox management and the aging hospital and health facility.” said Mayor Schmidt.

“Residents want to know they’re being heard and action will be taken. We’ve started the ball rolling by meeting with Robbie and will continue to work with him so that the State Government understands our needs. He also agreed that Charters Towers Regional Council will be an important link to him and therefore the State Government given the vast reaches of the new seat.” said the Mayor.

Mr Katter and Mayor Schmidt will tour the current hospital in the new year to gain an understanding of the community’s concerns with the existing facilities and identify what can potentially be done to remedy the situation.
