Water levels replenished at Goldfields Reservoir

The water levels at the Goldfields Reservoir in Maryborough have been replenished thanks to a partnership between Council and Central Highlands Water.

The water is being pumped from Central Highlands Water’s available groundwater resources and is being released to a channel that flows into the Goldfields Reservoir.

The Goldfields Reservoir is a recreational water asset managed by Central Goldfields Shire and is not part of Maryborough’s drinking water supply.

Outdoor dining gets a boost in Maryborough

A new outdoor ‘parklet’ dining area was installed outside the Daily Dose Café Wine Bar in High Street, Maryborough last week.

The parklet is part of a three-month trial and has been made possible with funding from the State Government’s Outdoor Eating and Entertainment Package.

All components of the parklet have been purchased or made in the Shire.

Council’s Economic Development team is liaising with other local food and drink businesses interested in parklets and footpath dining. Funding is available for a limited time.

Local businesses interested in getting involved can contact Council’s Economic Development Officer Brian Gould on 0428 927 806.
