 1906 A large meeting of the local ratepayers was held in the Bealiba Mechanics Hall to discuss the inadequate water supply for the town.

 1910 A resolution from the Dunolly Council was read at the Maryborough Council drawing attention to the fact that Secondary and Tech schools could only be erected in larger areas of population and that children further out were disadvantaged. The proposal was for railway passes for children to attend school in Maryborough, although declined by the Education Dept., the council moved to support the proposal.
