Closed council discusses Lake Dyer caravan park tender

The outcome for a tender process for Lake Dyer Caravan and Camping Ground have been discussed by council behind closed doors.

In a closed Lockyer Valley Regional Council meeting, Mayor Tanya Milligan removed herself from the room while the matter was discussed due to a conflict of interest that she declared at the start of the meeting.

Council last year put the management rights for the caravan park to tender and specifically sought interest from people with previous caravan park operations experience.
