Local MP Deb Frecklington has queried the State Government about what has happened to the proposed replacement of Wooroolin fire station.
The 2018-19 State Budget included an allocation of $800,000 out of a $1.4 million total for a new fire station in the town.
But no work has begun on the project, and there was no mention of any allocation in the 2019-20 State Budget.
On Tuesday, the Opposition Leader queried Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford about the fire station.
In a Question on Notice, Mrs Frecklington asked:
“With reference to funding allocated in the 2018-19 State Budget to build a new auxiliary Fire and Rescue Station in Wooroolin in the South Burnett and no works having been undertaken to date, and funding was not listed for a new Wooroolin Station in the 2019-20 Budget – Will the Minister advise if the Wooroolin Fire Station is to be renewed, or whether this funding has been withdrawn?”
Ministers must respond to a Question On Notice within 30 days.
