Upgraded amenities block now available at Mitchell Sporting Complex

Councillor Cameron O'Neil, Portfolio Chair of Facilities said the upgrade was timely, with the Mitchell Rodeo in April and the Mitchell Campdraft earlier this month.

"It's imperative that our facilities continue to be upgraded across the region so that people attending these events have access to quality amenities," Cr O'Neil said.

"Council continues to plan for the upgrading of its sporting and recreation infrastructure across the Maranoa to provide a high standard of facilities for local communities and visiting organisations to use."

The Queensland Government provided $78,787 to Maranoa Regional Council to upgrade the amenities block at the Mitchell RSL Combined Sporting Complex, to increase Queenslanders participation in sport and recreation activities.

Together with the funding from the Queensland State Department of Sport and Recreation, Council contributed $45,413.94 towards the project which included the construction of the new shower block and connection of both the new amenities and the existing toilet block at the facility into the town sewer system.
