Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 16 December 2021

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

I note that the State Government announcement that they will continue offsetting the cost of the waste levy on household wheelie bins. I am aware the officers will be looking at the Somerset Stats in line with this announcement.

Apparently, a report has been made in a Queensland Newspaper, that a Yowie has been seen in Jimna Saturday 4th December 2021, by three plantation workers.  Not long back to the Jimna Base Camp after tree planting, Stirling, Seamus and Margus were heading up School Road at about 7:50pm, when it was spotted.  It is reported that a big, dark, roundish shape was seen by two occupants of the car.  Do you believe in Yowies?  These hard working plantation workers say there is something out there, and it wasn’t someone dressed up!

I take this opportunity to wish my fellow Mayor and Councillors, Council Staff, all residents of our beautiful region a very Merry Christmas, and a Safe, Healthy and Happy 2022.  We are an awesome and envied team as we are not a team because we work together, we are a team because we respect, trust and care for each other.  In my role as Councillor, I look forward to achieving important and highly desirable outcomes during 2022.

Kilcoy Chamber of Commerce Business Meeting

Around ten people attended the meeting held at the Kilcoy RSL.  The meeting was led by Secretary Lee Robinson and based around brainstorming, sharing ideas and priorities that impact local businesses.  An opportunity that as leaders we must be willing to let go of what worked yesterday, and learn new ways of seeing, doing and leading.  It was suggested that the Chamber should survey local businesses to understand what is important to them, and what would encourage them to join the Chamber.  Membership is important for the Chamber to exist and to continue to grow.
