The holiday season is upon us, so it’s time to make sure everyone knows the arrangements for council services.
Council offices in Blackwater, Capella, Duaringa, Emerald, Springsure and Rolleston will close for the break at 5.00 pm on Friday 22 December 2017 and reopen at 8.30 am on Tuesday 2 January 2018. Tieri Office will close at 5.00 pm on Monday 18 December 2017 and reopen at 8.30 am on Monday 8 January 2018.
There are a number of people on-call for emergencies during the holidays, just call 1300 242 686 to reach our after-hours service.
Should we experience a major weather event, the place to go for road closure information is the Emergency Management Dashboard.
The dashboard is the one point of truth for all emergency and disaster information, including road closures and fires and electricity outages.
Council’s Facebook page will not be actively monitored during the Christmas break.
Roadside rubbish collection services will continue as normal. Emerald Transfer Station, Lochlees and Blackwater Landfills will be closed on Christmas Day. No alternate waste disposal will be provided.
All Central Highlands libraries will close from 22 December until 2 January 2018.
Our aquatic centres have vastly different opening days and hours over the festive season. We recommend contacting the centre to check if they will be open for your visit.
Have a happy and safe festive season!
