At the Ordinary Meeting of Mareeba Shire Council on Wednesday, 19 January 2022, Councillors passed a resolution to fund the installation of a new septic system at the Mt Molloy Hall. At a cost of $30,000 this is a significant investment at this important location. Mayor Angela Toppin explained the importance of the Mt Molloy Hall to the community. “Council recently entered into a community management arrangement with the Mt Molloy RSL Sub-Branch and we anticipate that the use of the hall will increase under their stewardship and that the Mt Molloy Memorial Hall will once again become a vibrant and well-used community asset,” stated Cr Toppin. The previous wastewater treatment system failed in 2021 and the CWA Hall has been providing a temporary septic system to ensure the continuation of the services at the hall. “The Mt Molloy Memorial Hall toilets are used, not only by those who hire the hall, but by travellers and passers-by and Council views this as an important service to continue,” Mayor Toppin explained.
