Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 27 April 2022

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

I hope everyone jumped on line and grabbed cheaper tickets to the Somerset Rail Trail Fund Run to be held on 10 July 2022.  The Flash Sale has been and gone with some terrific specials.  Remember this year we have the new bike leg, which will commence at Coominya and finish at Fernvale.   Were you one of over 500 Flash Sale registrations received over the weekend?  This was Council’s biggest Flash Sale to date, with over $1500 for the Ipswich Hospital Foundation raised.

Following events are being held during the month of May –  1st & 13th Kilcoy Autumn Cup Racing Carnival; 7th Yowie Mothers’ Day Parkrun (Dress up & breakfast at Black Rack); 7th Esk Show Ball; 7th Toogoolawah Charity Rodeo; 20th & 21st  Esk Show; 28th Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary Fete; 28th Lowood Show Ball; 29th Toogoolawah St Andrews Anglican Church 110th Anniversary Celebration.  Also, congratulations to the Kilcoy Rodeo Committee who has been successful in organising another Rodeo date for this year – mark it in your calendar Saturday 6th August!

Once again, Anzac Day was strongly supported at each and every commemoration held in the Somerset region.  The provision of home cooked food by volunteers and the comradery was exemplary.  Lest we Forget.

Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke for a strong Somerset Region
Over the past three days, I met Mayors, Councillors, Council staff from all states and territories of our great country.Equality with sharing the fiscal revenue pie with other levels of government is strongly supported by research and hard cold stats.

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. Thought provoking!! I will definitely be rewatching the video of this presentation.The Ukraine's Ambassador, Vasyl Myroshnychenko's address brought tears to our eyes. A special (and supportive) motion about this horrific conflict was raised and passed by ALGA. Australian councils have shown their support for Ukraine today, unanimously passing a motion of peace-seeking solidarity at the 2022 National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government in Canberra. ...
