Councillor sworn in

JO McNally embarked upon the next step of her life when she was sworn in as the newest Southern Downs Regional Councillor yesterday.

She admitted during the morning tea break of her first committee meeting – engineering services – that it was “pretty full-on”.

“I was a bit nervous,” she said with a smile.

However, Cr McNally said her fellow councillors had been more than welcoming.

She did not make her first comment on an issue until the early afternoon, when she commented in general business on the Dungaree fountain situation.

“When council allowed the fountain to be built in the river they then took responsibility for it ... we do need to do something,” she said.

Her first motion was during the general business of the corporate services committee meeting when she moved that council only put forward two nominations this year.

Watch out for a story on the Dungaree fountain in the Daily News later in the week.
