Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

I am delighted to share that the Kilcoy Yowies are going on tour!  Very early in the season, the Kilcoy Yowies were invited to participate in the Fijian Cup.  The competition runs from the 30th November to 3rd December at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka, Fiji.  The format will provide each team with a minimum of three games on each day of the preliminary rounds, with a playoff structure through to the finals to decide the winning teams in each division.  Congratulations, best of luck and well done Yowies!

Thirty-eight regions in Queensland are most at risk of a horror bushfire season due to below-average rainfall, above-average temperatures, and a high fuel load, according to the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service.  It was reported that Somerset and Redland City are most at risk of bushfires in the southeast.  It is imperative that our residents and visitors to our region understand the fire risks associated with the current weather conditions.

11       Kilcoy State Primary School P&C Meeting

14       The Condensery Exhibition Opening

15-18 Local Government Association of Queensland Annual Conference – Gladstone

20       Kilcoy State High School Awards Ceremony

The 127th LGAQ Annual Conference was held in Gladstone from Monday 16th to Wednesday 18th October, and commenced with a warm and moving Welcome to Country from Gooreng Elder, Aunty Juliri Ingra and a cheerful welcome to Gladstone from Mayor Matt Burnett.  Councils across Queensland combined to discuss issues and to work forward with necessary answers.  Our council proudly presented to the conference delegates  the story of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and the ongoing economic benefits to our region.  It was a bitter-sweet moment for me as this was my last conference, however I will always treasure the 37 years I have spent in Local Government.  The level of government closest to its people and that consist of ordinary people who share passion and a strong desire to enrich their rural region.

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
