Agenda Item #35 Councillors’ Report

Kilcoy residents and businesses are generally adhering to the health requirements as stipulated under COVID-19. It was evident that campers followed State Government health orders and did not camp over Easter as in previous years, the roads were very quiet and little activity experienced in and around Kilcoy. Metro North and West Morton health authorities have reported that any COVID-19 affected residents in our region are well on to recovery.

Our local gym instructor is using Zoom platform to broadcast her exercise classes over Facebook, with a great response from her membership.

Lastly, I wish to thank voters who cast their votes under such challenging times and I look forward to working as part of the Team Somerset for the next four years and acquiring achievements that will meet with our residents’ and businesses’ needs and future goals and objectives.

Many discussions took place about important matters and what Local Gov needs to do to assist.I was completely captivated by Stan Grant and his keynote address around global democracy.

A special (and supportive) motion about this horrific conflict was raised and passed by ALGA.
