Toowoomba Mayor Paul Antonio (pictured above) says he is grateful for anything that came out of the State Budget for the Garden City. 
Treasurer Jackie Trad committed 1.8 billion to health, education and infrastructure for the Darling Downs region yesterday.
Mr Antonio says that council wanted to target other areas as well but they will have to see how that goes: 
"You know I think that this area is looking for infrastructure.
I notice there is a fair bit of money in some of the funding arrangements that are competitive that are a bit hard to get hold of money -- you've got to compete for that money.
So, yeah we've got to examine the details over the next few days then we are probably in a better position to talk about it".
