Boat ramp will not change Emu Park

CENTRAL Qld Boat Ramp Action Group secretary Christine King yesterday rebutted Mayor Brad Carter's suggestions Emu Park's charm would be lost if a boat ramp was built there.

Ms King said it was the prime location and would not encroach on Emu Park's "village atmosphere".

Fifty-five people turned out to support the idea at a sausage sizzle on Saturday.

Ms King said she hoped a $50,000 study between Rockhampton Regional Council and the State Government would find Emu Park the suitable place to build a new ramp.
