Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 10 June 2020

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
The inquiry into the bungled online publication of council election results has made no recommendations beyond calling on the Parliament to “note the contents” of its report. It is disappointing to learn this outcome following the critical submissions made to the parliamentary inquiry about the March 28 election night, where results took lengthy delays to be posted on the Electoral Commission of Queensland’s (ECQ) website. I guess at least, it is reassuring that the inquiry’s report advised that there was no suggestion that the integrity of the voting process or the legitimacy of the results were in any way compromised by the technical issues that was evident during the LG Elections.

On a much brighter note, I wish to share the absolutely brilliant project undertaken by the Hazeldean Rural Fire Brigade which began on the 30th May 2020. The Mural Artist, Ross Holloway is working on distinguishing pictorial history recorded on the walls of the station and which have been taken from photos whilst brigade crews have been onsite at local call outs. There has been a lot of community support and interest generated with this developing project. The brigade used its own funds and felt it was a way to give back to community after years of generous donations made by community and recently a local group. Apparently, they all feel a little bit of it belongs to them.

BUSY At Work is running a Certificate 1 in Construction Traineeship for local unemployed in the Somerset region. The course will be run from the Kilcoy Motorcross Club commencing on 29 June and participants will gain valuable skills that will help them gain employment within the Industry. Approximately 15 plus people will come on board. The group will work with Kilcoy Indoor Sports Centre Manager, to access first aid training and interview space. Participants will be doing a lot of hands on work including, painting, fencing, basic carpentry and general property maintenance. An RTO will work with the group to provide them with a Construction White Card and First Aid certification. Traineeships like this are mostly conducted in larger towns and unfortunately regional areas tend to miss out, so this is a great opportunity for people in the area who would like to move in to the construction industry.

179 YEARS AT CRESSBROOK

Today, the McConnel family celebrate 179-years of settlement and custodianship at Cressbrook.

Cressbrook is now run by fifth-generation descendant Christopher McConnel, with his wife Susan and their daughter Caitlin. Their home, the House at Cressbrook, is the oldest residence and third oldest building in Queensland, and they are the oldest identified family business in Queensland.

In the words of Madge McConnel (nee Kent of Jondaryan), wife of second-generation owner of Cressbrook, James Henry McConnel, “the story of Cressbrook would not be complete without reference to old friends, and employees whose memory we value, and whose descendants some of them are still with us or settled near us.”

Madge’s words continue to have relevance today, over 100-years on. Today, Christopher, Susan and Caitlin not only celebrate this historic milestone, but more importantly, it provides an opportunity for them to be grateful for, and to acknowledge the continued support of friends, family and members of the public who hold their story, and the history of agriculture and development in Australia, dear to their hearts.
