 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 11 November 2020

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news of a 20 year old Mt Kilcoy resident who lost his life in a car accident on Monday morning 9th November 2020.  The accident occurred on the D’Aguilar Highway between Kilcoy and the turn off to Harlin.  (My Father and the young lad’s Great Grandfather were great mates.)

I would encourage our residents to attend the Linville Heritage Festival to be held 20 -22 November 2020.  There is lots of information on the Linville Progress Assn.  Inc. Website.

Mortgage repayments are now cheaper than rents in many Brisbane suburbs, and it has been reported that those making the switch to home ownership are saving hundreds a month.  Kilcoy was mentioned as where buyers will see the greatest savings, around $470 per month cheaper than typical rent costs.  The report discloses the tendency is evident in all property types, however most common in units and houses in fringe locations where values are around $300,000 or lower.

Congratulations to Brisbane Valley Protein for receiving the Ipswich Region Food and Agribusiness Award presented at the City of Ipswich Business Excellence Awards.  Tough competition was provided by agribusinesses from across Ipswich, Scenic Rim, Lockyer and Somerset regions.

A very enjoyable day held at Victoria Park, Brisbane on Friday 30 October.  A day that provided important information sharing and a chance to network with new and returning South East Queensland Councillors.  Appreciation to Council of Mayors, South East Queensland for organising the event, I look forward to a future networking opportunity.

A great morning was held with around twenty volunteers releasing between 100,000 and 120,000 Bass fingerlings at The Spit, Lake Somerset and Lake Wivenhoe.  Many thanks to Garry Fitzgerald and his crew for an educational morning.
