Council invites Courier Mail to see positives in community

Balonne Shire Council has written to the Courier Mail editor inviting him or one of his journalists to visit our Shire and see the positive things our community is doing to combat drugs.

Drugs are an issue in every town in every state and it's  a shame that our wonderful community, which has shown it will not tolerate drugs, continues to be mentioned in a negative light. None of the recent arrests would have been possible without you - our community.

Our local police and support services work closely with all community sectors and often spend their own time, and money, helping our youth break free from the grip of drugs.

Our region and our communities should be proud of saying no to drugs and Council applauds and supports that stance. #saynotodrugs
