Council drops plan to erect kit home

LIVINGSTONE Shire Councillors have changed their minds about housing a counselling service in a kit home.

At last month's general meeting the councillors agreed to purchase a $140,000 kit home to be built behind the Yeppoon Library for the State Government-funded Strengthening Family Connections Program; but at this week's general meeting a recommendation was put forward for the Yeppoon Library to be extended to accommodate the program.

Councillors were told at the meeting that in addition to saving between $4000 and $5000, the benefit of extending the library building on its southern side would be having a larger building.

Mayor Bill Ludwig said about $750,000 in State Government funding had been secured for the program to offer family counselling and advocacy to the Capricorn Coast.

The motion was carried.
