Agenda Item # 41 Councillors’ Report
(Since the last Ordinary Council meeting, I have attended)

26 February Kilcoy District Progress Association Inc. AGM & Monthly Meeting
The meeting was poorly attended; however, a quorum was obtained and congratulations must go to the outgoing committee, and who once again undertook the same roles for the next twelve months. Difficulties were expressed around the Kilcoy roadworks and the associated reduced attendance at the Yowie Markets. It was agreed that the Yowie Markets for the foreseeable future be held one Saturday per month, in preference to two Saturdays a month.

27 February Kilcoy Showground Reserve Overall Management Committee Meeting
A well-attended meeting by key stakeholders.

28 February Kilcoy Showground & Racecourse Official Opening
A lovely afternoon celebrating the fresh and new facilities at the Kilcoy Showground as part of the Kilcoy Races.

29 February Commemoration Ceremony – Lost and Injured Wildlife – Jimna
A very warm and heartfelt ceremony. A plaque was attached to the Jimna Public Hall, forever in the locals’ memories.

29 February Nudes to fall from skies – Skydive Ramblers – Toogoolawah
Cr Brieschke and I attended the home of Skydive Ramblers to watch the skydiver formation beat the previous number of 22. Unfortunately, the record was not broken, however it was matched by Skydive Ramblers. The event was held to raise funds to find a cure of Multiple Sclerosis.

04 March Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn Monthly Meeting
The membership discussed the need and associated benefits for the village tennis courts to be refurbished.

05 March Brisbane Valley Heritage Trails Monthly Meeting – Moore
A lively meeting held at the beautiful Moore Soldiers Memorial Hall.

07 March Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn AGM
A well organised AGM, congratulations to this very impressive local association. I am proud to be part of this group.

As the last Ordinary Meeting in this term of this Council, I take this opportunity to wish all Councillors all the very best with future plans. For those who are not standing for re-election, Councillors Hall and Ogg, may you enjoy your retirement and that you succeed and are filled with happiness with the next chapter of your lives. You have done your region proud over the length of your involvement with the Somerset Regional Council. Best wishes to Council staff and many thanks for their assistance over the past four years. And as I keep telling our residents, our region is heading for exciting times.
