Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 25 November 2020
Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
Community members are uniting in an effort to change the unwelcomed attitude of campers and other users of environmentally sensitive areas in the southern section of our region. Community members are taking an active stance and will ensure that rubbish left behind is collected and disposed of appropriately. In due time, this unacceptable occurrence will be reduced and eventually replaced with responsible behaviour and attitude. Together, this despicable matter will be resolved.
Congratulations to Hayden Smith representing Somerset Region SES Unit, for receiving the North Ipswich Rotary Police and Emergency Services SES Officer of the Year.
It has been reported that a new procurement agreement designed by the Australian Olympic Committee will provide Queensland companies with first preference of providing hundreds of services from torch design to the opening and closing ceremony fireworks. Hundreds of Queensland businesses will be given the opportunity of building stadiums, roads and key resources for the 2032 Olympics as part of a “Queensland First” strategy to be ratified by the International Olympic Committee.

13 Funeral – Coen Michael Fry
The Kilcoy community said farewell to a very respected and well-liked young man who was regarded as a bit of a comedian. Coen gave up his time to volunteer with the Rural Fire Brigade and judged cattle at the Ekka. As a big fan for sausages in bread with onions and barbecue sauce, along with Bushell’s tea, the dish was served to guests following Coen’s funeral. A precious gift to his family, and who lived a full and varied life with a true work ethic at such an early age.

With solid vision and hard work, the community of Linville is clearly the winner. I also acknowledge community members who got in and shared the workload. Well done to everyone!
