Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 24 January 2024

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

Congratulations to the Linville Hotel who are thrilled to announce that they are finalists in the Best Pub Stay category of the 2023 National Grey Nomad Awards.

Happy 5th birthday to Yowie parkrun, and who are inviting interested residents to attend the parkrun on Saturday 3 February 7:00am behind the Kilcoy Information Centre dressed in your most colourful running attire. Yowie parkrun commenced on the first Saturday of February 2019, with 2,023 participants who have completed 6,557 parkruns covering a total distance of 32,785 km including 840 new personal bests.  A total of 157 individuals have volunteered 2,013 times.

Research for the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) has revealed councils are picking up a massive $360 million tab each year to deliver services that are the responsibility of other levels of government and the private sector.  It’s a huge cost shift to local governments, which are being forced to step in without adequate funding to fill others’ gaps, as well as keep providing all of their own core council services to communities.  With councils receiving just three cents in every dollar of tax raised in Australia, with around 80 cents going to the Federal Government and the rest to the states, councils are the lowest funded level of government.  LGAQ are seeking every  council’s support of its campaign and to join the call for an end to State and Federal government cost shifting, and for a fairer share of funding that local communities not only need, but deserve.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
