Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 25 May 2022

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
Foot and mouth disease has been confirmed in Indonesia. It is a highly infectious viral infection of domestic and wild cloven-hooved animals, including cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, camelids, and buffalo. It does not infect horses. The disease is not present in Australia and we all need to work together to keep it that way. Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment are encouraging those involved with animals to understand the symptoms.

Homeowners impacted by flood water have been encouraged to apply for their share of a major new funding package that would rebuild and floodproof Queensland homes. The State Government has announced the $741m package, which will be jointly funded by the commonwealth, and would give some homeowners the option to have their property bought back. The program will apply in 37 local government areas. Homeowners can register their interest for the program via the government website. Register your interest at www.qld.gov.au/resilienthomes.

Due to the unpredictable weather pattern and the forecast of rain this week and into the weekend, the Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary is mindful of the unsafe condition of the grounds where the fete will take place. Unfortunately, the auxiliary has been left with no choice but to cancel the 2022 fete planned for Saturday, however the auxiliary looks forward to the 2023 fete.

It was pleasing to see the response by our rural residents who gathered to network around weed and pest management information shared at the workshop held at the Toogoolawah Golf Course. There is great concern with the variety of weeds that are appearing in many areas of our region.

Congratulations to Ray White Rural Kilcoy for hosting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, the event raised over $3,700. A huge thank you to all contributing businesses and community members for their generous donations. There was plenty of raffles and an auction to complete the fund raising effort.

Thank you to our art members who attended the launch of the Somerset Art Gallery Trail Flags. The event took place on the Courthouse Gallery deck overlooking the beautiful Greensill Lake.

It was a bitter sweet moment. We said thank you so very much to the outgoing Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn Executive, and welcomed the 2022/23 SDDPA Executive. Goodbye to a hard working tireless leader, outgoing President Noelene Hunter. Please don’t forget us Noelene upon relocating from our community. Thank you for all you have done.

Many thanks to local Kilcoy Police Officer Marty, Crime Prevention Unit Police Officers Jo and Gemma, and Crime Stoppers Chairperson Ken for sharing important information on security cameras, security tips and advice, and how to report matters to police. We appreciate your support and guidance.
