The properties to be included in the Systematic Inspection Program are potentially all properties within the South Burnett area, both within and without the designated town areas.

A copy of the approved inspection program is available online via Council’s website or for inspection and purchase ($2.00 per copy) at Council’s Kingaroy Customer Service Centre at 45 Glendon Street Kingaroy.

Water Meter Replacement Program – Nanango
October 26, 2020: As part of Council’s routine maintenance programs and its commitment to ensure the long-term sustainability and efficiency of our water infrastructure, Council will be conducting a water meter replacement program in Nanango.

This replacement program will run from Monday 26 October 2020 and is expected to be completed by Friday 30 December 2020, weather permitting.

Water meters are mechanical devices that wear with usage and age. We have a proactive replacement program for water meters, which are nearing the end of their useful life. It is an ongoing program that ensures your water meter readings (and your bills) remain as accurate as possible.

Water meter replacement depends on the specifications of the individual meter. Therefore, it is normal that your meter may be replaced but the meter belonging to your neighbour may not be.

Council apologises for any inconvenience that this work may cause, and thanks you in advance for your patience.

Please direct any enquiries to Council’s Water and Wastewater branch by phoning 4189 9100 or by email
Doing Business With Council
July 2, 2020: Did you know that Council has established a local marketplace for non-contracted, low risk, ad-hoc supply arrangements for business within the South Burnett region?

Felix Marketplace is an online procurement system which allows Council officers to search, nominate and invite local suppliers to quote. In turn, suppliers will receive an email notification with an invite to submit a quote. All the supplier is required to do is log in for details and then upload the quote.

If you are interested in supplying goods or services to us you can register your business on Council’s Local Marketplace on Felix for free. The marketplace intends to capture goods and services such as Catering, Stationery, Tools & Equipment, Hardware, Printing, Horticulture, Plumbing & Electrical products, Uniforms, Clothing and PPE, Accommodation, Training Providers, Spare Parts, Florists & Giftware, Information Technology hardware and many others.

A full list of the Local Marketplace categories and registration instructions are available on Council’s website

Felix Marketplace is a great opportunity for local business owners within the South Burnett region to have their goods and services seen by a new audience. The registration process does not mean that you are automatically a supplier to Council, and should you be engaged for goods or services you may be required to provide additional documentation.

For further information on how you can do business with Council, please contact Council’s Strategic Procurement coordinator on 4189 9100 or by email
