Cr Gaedtke supports local free health and well-being program

After attending a meeting about the program, and learning that the program is for anyone struggling with a range of lifestyle-related diseases, Cr Gaedtke advises that she is all for helping the general well-being of community members of Kilcoy and surrounding areas.  4D Living, a registered not-for-profit charity is bringing to Kilcoy the “Diabetic Health Clinic Lifestyle Program” totally free of charge.  The Founder of the program, Mr Peter Pratt informed Cr Gaedtke that the program is for anyone who is sick and tired of struggling with weight issues, poor health due to lifestyle-related issues, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritic pains, poor quality sleep and many others.

There would not be too many people in our community who would not have suffered at one time or another with at least one of the focused health issues.  Cr Gaedtke wants residents to fight back and join in with the sediment “That enough is enough!”.   A very unique program that has helped hundreds of people transition to an enjoyable way of life that allows participants to make the choices that remove the main cause of most chronic diseases.

Cr Gaedtke met some of the people involved with a pilot group of 16 who undertook the Diabetic Health Clinic Program in early 2017 under the guidance of Peter Pratt at the Kilcoy General Practice.  Some comments made by group members since the successful pilot are:  ´This program is professional, informative and life changing.  This is a great opportunity for everyone to learn to be healthy.   This program has changed my life, my outlook on life and the true meaning of great food.  So happy to be medicine free´.

Want to learn more?  The program starts on Sunday 4 February 2018 at the Kilcoy Memorial Hall and you can reserve your seats by visiting www.diabetichealthclinic.org/register or  complete a registration form available at the Kilcoy General Practice.

Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and PlanningThe Honourable Dr Steven MilesGreater council integrity for QueenslandersThe Office of the Independent Assessor will receive more funding and Queensland communities will see improved clarity for councillors around their decision-making, announced the Deputy Premier and Minister for Local Government today.The Deputy Premier announced $1.302 million over two years to support eight full-time equivalent positions in the Office of the Independent Assessor OIA.“It’s vital Queensland communities have confidence in the decision-making of their elected representatives, and we are looking to ensure that decision-making isn’t hindered by any confusion around potential conflicts of interest,” Mr Miles said.“The Government recently undertook a project which analysed the operations of the new councillor complaints framework to make sure it is working smoothly and effectively.“The analysis resulted in a number of recommendations, including streamlining the interactions between the department, the Office of the Independent Assessor (OIA) and the Councillor Conduct Tribunal (CCT).“We will streamline the process of declaring conflicts of interest, clarifying when a councillor can and cannot participate in decision-making, and how the conflict of interest framework, including the definition of ‘related party’, applies in small council settings.“We’re also providing greater resourcing support for OIA to help carry out its investigations into councillor complaints and keep up with high demand.“To support the OIA to carry out its investigations into councillor complaints we’re committing an additional $1.302 million over two years to support eight temporary full-time equivalent positions.It follows an announcement in December 2020, of an extra $250,000 for the OIA to fund an additional three staff.Mr Miles said the Government will continue working with key stakeholders such as the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ), to look at ways of improving the system.Local Government Association of Queensland CEO Greg Hallam thanked the Deputy Premier and his department for working proactively with the LGAQ and its member councils to review the current conflict of interest laws to make sure they are achieving what they were designed to.“Ensuring Queensland’s conflict of interest rules are both workable and effective is of critical importance to local councils and the communities they serve,” Mr Hallam said.“We have provided the Deputy Premier and his department with an extensive submission outlining some of the unintended consequences our member councils are experiencing and recommending potential reforms to the Local Government Act and we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with the Government to progress those changes.”Mr Miles thanked the LGAQ and all stakeholders involved for their input to improve the sector.“It’s crucial we keep listening to stakeholders and support councillors to be the best representatives they can be for their communities,” Mr Miles said.“This is about making a good system even better by increasing transparency and integrity and providing Queenslanders the finest Local Government system in the country.”ENDSMedia contact: Katharine Wright – 0428 957 903 / Amy Hunter – 0423 651 484 ...
