De-amalgamation support grows
THE number of supporters for de-amalgamation of the Capricorn Coast has climbed to more than 6500.
Petition signatures increased by more than 1000 at the weekend after a group of 12 people manned a petition stall at the Yeppoon Show, helping the bid push towards the target of 10,000.
Councillor Bill Ludwig said the feedback from the crowd was “extremely positive”, with overwhelming support for the call.
In an email update on the petition and newly formed Cap Coast De-amalgamation Movement steering committee, Mr Ludwig gave a special mention to people in the community who had given him pages full of signatures from their neighbourhood.
