Rural Crisis Summit – Mayor Beveridge applauds attempts to help our graziers


“Any moves in the direction of financially helping them is great.”

That comes from Charters Towers Mayor Frank Beveridge ahead of the Rural Crisis Summit at the end of the month.

The summit headed by local KAP member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth who will address issues unique to our town in the hope that we can give those falling on hard times a little boost.

Mayor Beveridge however did concede that any efforts to financially help them would be challenging.

“It will be a little bit complicated but i do applaud the efforts of our local member Shane Knuth in finding a solution to this problem.”

Producers in the region are encouraged to attend the summit where a whole host of professionals, politicians and local stakeholders are expected to roll in to town.

The event is open to the public and will take place on August 31st but don’t forget to keep up with Charters Towers Plus More as we’ll be covering the event affecting you live.
