'Close calls' at Rocky school prompt council to take action

SAFETY of Rocky kids are on the council agenda today as Frenchville State School's ongoing traffic issues are combated.

In today's Infrastructure Committee Meeting, council officers will present a report about potential works for the school area to improve traffic for parents and students.

The safety issue at Frenchville State School has been an ongoing issue of teachers and parents for several months after a number of "close calls" were presented to council.

Rockhampton Region councillors will talk ideas for the potential works in the meeting tomorrow, with the best options to be presented to the school.

Parking meters at Pilbeam Theatre could also be a thing of the past as councillors discuss the future of the venue.

A proposal to analyse the occupancy and turnover of the meters will be discussed in tomorrow's Planing and Regulatory Committee Meeting.

The option of introducing two hours free parking to occupants is also on the table for discussion.

A number of development applications are also being presented including a food and drink outlet and personal training gym.

Councillors will also discuss the application for a material change of use for a health care service in the region.

All recommendations made in today's meetings will be moved to the ordinary council meeting later this month.

More information will be available later today.
