EMU Park Petrol Station owner Rob Devine was excited to tell his staff they may still have their jobs yesterday after positive mediation with the Emu Park Historical Society.
Rockhampton Regional councillor for Division 2 Tom Wyatt arranged the meeting for both parties to reach an agreement on the amount of the society's land that could be sold to Rob so B-double fuel tankers could get access to the diesel pump.
Mr Devine said he was very pleased with the outcome so far, with the closure date of May 24 now off the cards.
"We got progress, so I'm very happy about it," Mr Devine said.
"If it wasn't for Tom or Margaret Strelow this wouldn't be happening, so I'd really like to thank them for their help."
The issue went through court in April and The Morning Bulletin has published reports detailing each party's side of the story.
Historical Society members, Mr Wyatt and Mr Devine, discussed the amount of land needed yesterday, and left with a new proposal to be presented to the historical society soon.
"It was a very good meeting, both parties were civil to each other, so it is saving the jobs of four people and the viability of the town," Mr Wyatt said.
The parties are expected to meet once more.
