Chamber hopeful

CHAMBER of Commerce president David Littleproud is hopeful the new council can deliver good things for Warwick's business and retail sector.

Mr Littleproud said he would like to see the region's businesses promoted to both outside investors and local shoppers.

"It was interesting to see the Toowoomba mayor come out and say publicly that Toowoomba is open for business and we would like to see the same mentality taken here," he said.

"We have a strong retail sector here and it's important for people to realise that and support it."

Mr Littleproud said it was essential for the new mayor and councillors to understand the local sector was in competition with surrounding areas.

The chamber will also be encouraging council to tackle such financial issues as soaring rates.

"It is important they keep a handle on financial management and we have made it clear the rate rises seen in the last term are not sustainable," Mr Littleproud said.

Mr Littleproud said he believed council and the chamber could work well together, as long as results were evident.

"I was encouraged by what the mayor has had to say and going on face value I think we can have a good relationship but we want to see results," he said.
