This year, Whitsunday Regional Council is looking at either holding a Christmas decorationcompetition for businesses in Proserpine Main Street or providing Christmas decorations for Main Street businesses to display over the Christmas period.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said Proserpine Main Street is significantly limited in what Christmasdecorations can be erected due to Council not owning control of the main street.
“Unlike the main streets in Airlie Beach, Bowen and Collinsville, Council does not own Proserpine Main Street meaning we do not have authority to put up Christmas lights or decorations in the street.
“This has meant in previous years that Proserpine has missed out on celebrating the Christmasspirit.
“To rectify this, this year Council is looking at getting Proserpine businesses involved in helping to spread the Christmas cheer, by either providing lights and decorations to businesses or running a Christmas decoration competition with cash prizes for businesses in the main street.
“Businesses are able to display decorations and lights in their front windows and on their premises, as long as it doesn’t impede the footpath or road.
“The options will be presented to the Proserpine Chamber of Commerce at their meeting tonight to see which option local businesses would prefer and which option would best help spread theChristmas joy in Proserpine,” she said.
