 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 14 April 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 I received a request from a Kilcoy resident – “I frequent Yowie Park often as a rate payer of Kilcoy and very regularly enjoy the facilities.  While I was there, I noted that crowds of people use the area.  One time recently, I noticed a young Mother looking within the toilets for a change table facility for her and her baby.  She found none within the toilet block and chose then to lay the baby down on the grass on a blanket, and changed the baby outside on the grass near the toilets.  Is it possible to install a change table into the two disabled toilets?”

I would like to ascertain how many baby change tables we have installed in our public toilet facilities throughout our region, I therefore foreshadow a report of such nature.

Digital driver’s licences will be deployed statewide following a 94 per cent of participants satisfied with the digital shake up after a recent trial.  The seven-month pilot wrapped up in September last year and involved more than 750 residents and 120 businesses from Maryborough and Hervey Bay who were able to display their IDs and licences on a smartphone app.

The 2021 Rugby League Ipswich competition kicks off on April 17 with a stronger Reserve Grade comp, with the inclusion of the Brisbane Valley Bulls back and Brothers fielding an extra side.  Rugby League Ipswich chairman said a final decision will be made about the Goonda and West End A-Grade teams so a draw can be created.  The Brisbane Valley Bulls, an Esk-based team has 30 country footballers signed and eager to play.  The team is made up of players from Toogoolawah, Esk, Lowood and Gatton.

I express my sincere sympathy of the recent fire and destruction of the very popular Red Deer Café.  It has been reported that the owners are determined to rebuild, and Esk will once again enjoy this prevalent destination.

  • Congratulations to the organisers of the Kilcoy Rodeo and the Kilcoy Konvoy. The event was a complete success with over 3,000 participants and over 165 trucks taking part in the convoy leaving from Winya Road and making its way through to the Kilcoy Showgrounds.  It was a great event that returned high moral to the Kilcoy community.  Well done to everyone involved!
