Councillors work to strengthen ties between regions
BUNDABERG has played host to the Gladstone Mayor and her councillors on a trip aimed at strengthening ties between the two regions and investigating how they can work together.
Bundaberg Deputy Mayor David Batt said Thursday's visit came after Mayor Mal Foreman and economic development manager Cameron Bisley visited Gladstone a few weeks ago to look at economic opportunities between the two regions.
Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers and councillors then returned the visit.
"The aim is to strengthen our ties and relationships and chat about our cross border relationships and how we do things now together, with things we have in common like the ports, disaster management and tourism and what else we can do," Cr Batt said.
"They've got a lot of businesses up there that we could support if they were looking at expanding."
Bundaberg councillors will do a similar tour of the Gladstone region in the new year.
