MORNING BRIEF: All the news you need to start your day
Good morning and welcome to the Daily News morning briefing, with a roundup of all the latest stories affecting Warwick and surrounds on Friday, July 10.
Killarney targeted for future council development
Changes could be coming for the picturesque small town of Killarney, after it was earmarked for the development of an Urban Design Framework next financial year. UDFs use community feedback to inform a long-term vision for the area, so the Daily News spoke with several key players to determine the town's needs. The list was long and varied, with a strong focus on tourism and recreation.
Flu cases drop across the Southern Downs
Better hygiene practices, as encouraged during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, have come in handy this flu season. Cases are down to record lows, with only a third of the usual number reported to medical professionals. Dr Lynton Hudson from the Condamine Medical Centre said the public was better prepared this year, and hoped the good news wouldn't make people complacent.
Everything you need to know ahead of the borders reopening
The day has finally come. From midday the border between Queensland and New South Wales will reopen, to the exception of Victorian residents. But driving down to Tenterfield or Legume won't be as it was before the pandemic, with police on patrol and passes still required.
Cloud coverage is pushing the daily minimums into the double digits, with Warwick recording a low of just 11C last night according to Weatherzone. Today is expected to look very similar to yesterday, with some isolated drizzle about and a top of 20C. Keep your fingers and toes crossed for significant rain on Sunday, when the Bureau of Meteorology says some lucky residents may receive as much as 50mm.
