Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 9 November 2022

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

State Government will soon gauge the community’s views on growing the containers for change program by expanding the program to include glass wine and spirit bottles to ramp up recycling, put money back into the pockets of Queenslanders and charities, and protect the state’s environment and great lifestyle.  Consultation is expected to be launched in December and run through to February 2023.

Mark Saunders, Area Director QFES publicly acknowledged the students of Kilcoy State High School when he presented Certificate II in Public Safety program at the Awards Morning held on 21st October 2022.  Mr Saunders thanked the brigades, mentors and instructors involved in this program as without them, the program would not be possible.

Federal and State Governments have discussed the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games infrastructure budget allocations and associated responsibilities, it is reassuring to learn that the State Government has proposed a draft master plan for significant upgrade of South Bank to modernize the precinct ahead of the 2032 Olympics.   The draft master plan was produced after extensive community consultation which highlighted how residents and visitors want to evolve the parklands more than 30 years on after its creation after World Expo ’88.
