 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 13 April 2022

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

Vaccine mandates for hospitality and entertainment venues will be scraped in a major win for businesses.  As from 14th April, staff and customers will not have to be vaccinated when entering restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs,  casinos, theme parks, libraries, galleries, weddings, showgrounds, museums, stadiums and cinemas.  Vaccination and check-in requirements will continue for anyone visiting or working in vulnerable settings (hospitals, disability accommodation services, residential aged care), as well as for workers in high risk settings including schools, childcare, prisons and airports.  I welcome this decision, and applaud the State Government for recognising the level of vaccination achieved in our great state, and I stress again the disconnect this mandate has caused to our communities.

Congratulations to Esk Caravan Park for taking out the 2022 Caravan Parks Association of Queensland (CPAQ) Awards – 2022 Refurbishment Award Winner.  The awards provide Queensland caravan parks and their staff the opportunity to review and reflect on their own activities each year.

Following Queensland councils urging the Federal Government to immediately commit to a trial of domestic mobile roaming during emergencies, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) will conduct a public inquiry into access to regional mobile towers and into the feasibility of providing mobile roaming during natural disasters or other emergencies.  Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, Paul Fletcher said the 2021 Regional Telecommunications Review had noted strong progress but highlighted issues that need to be further addressed.

Around fourteen adults and children enjoyed making “The Choice” film at the Youth Filmmaking Workshops held on Saturday 26 March at the Somerset Civic Centre.  The day was enjoyed immensely by all who attended the workshop.  It was pleasing to see our youth full of energy and playing their parts extremely well, it was a story that unfolded as we went step by step.  Thank you so much to both Greg and Andrea for their expertise and guidance on the day.

A very emotional farewell was offered by Mrs Carey, who had been a member of the Linville State School staff for 30 years.  Mrs Carey was presented with a beautiful home-made farewell cake, gifts, flowers and a lovely framed certificate of attainment.  It was very evident that Mrs Carey will be sorely missed by all.
