Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 23 March 2022
Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
The Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare Assn held a very successful Jimna Landcare Festival on Saturday 19th March. Around 140 people made their way to Jimna and spent the day at the festival. The festival was blessed with perfect weather, interesting and informative stalls, entertaining and interesting speakers, great live music, lots of information around bush tucker, different stalls selling plants and other much needed supplies, hunger enhancing smells from the Kilcoy Lions BBQ and award winning scones and coffee from our host Pete. Jimna Base Camp was a perfect venue to hold this community based event. This festival now completes the projects funded through Landcare Led Bushfire Recovery supported by the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Program for Wildlife and their Habitat.

Deputy Premier and Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning Steven Miles said the 16,500 assessments were undertaken by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES), supported by staff from the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA). While some of these properties will be repaired quickly, others may be uninhabitable for months, if not longer.
The Queensland Government has worked to unlock Personal Hardship Assistance Grants for those impacted residents, including additional options for those who aren’t insured. For more information, impacted Queenslanders can visit the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy website or call the Community Hotline on 1800 173 349.
The State Recovery Coordinator, Major-General Jake Ellwood, is working closely with the QRA and key stakeholders to commence this plan which will include programs that address all of the issues that people are facing – their housing, their amenities and their mental health.
