What’s in a name? Lots of angst

THE simple act of naming a bridge apparently isn't so simple.

Gympie regional councillors spent a lot of time pondering the decision of what to name the new bridge being built over Amamoor Creek last week.

But the general public didn't get to hear what any of those names might be.

Cr Julie Walker has a name for the bridge, but the meeting didn't get to hear it, locals have some ideas for names but the meeting didn't get to hear them either.

Apparently all the proposed names were discussed in a closed doors workshop before the council meeting.

It seems that council thinks there are many things the general public shouldn't know about because they may cause division in the community.

I can't wait to get to the meetings to name the new flood levee.
