 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 25 November 2020

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 Community members are uniting in an effort to change the unwelcomed attitude of campers and other users of environmentally sensitive areas in the southern section of our region.  Community members are taking an active stance and will ensure that rubbish left behind is collected and disposed of appropriately.  In due time, this unacceptable occurrence will be reduced and eventually replaced with responsible behaviour and attitude.  Together, this despicable matter will be resolved.

 Congratulations to Hayden Smith representing Somerset Region SES Unit, for receiving the North Ipswich Rotary Police and Emergency Services SES Officer of the Year.

It has been reported that a new procurement agreement designed by the Australian Olympic Committee will provide Queensland companies with first preference of providing hundreds of services from torch design to the opening and closing ceremony fireworks.  Hundreds of Queensland businesses will be given the opportunity of building stadiums, roads and key resources for the 2032 Olympics as part of a “Queensland First” strategy to be ratified by the International Olympic Committee.

The Kilcoy community said farewell to a very respected and well-liked young man who was regarded as a bit of a comedian.  Coen gave up his time to volunteer with the Rural Fire Brigade and judged cattle at the Ekka.  As a big fan for sausages in bread with onions and barbecue sauce, along with Bushell’s tea, the dish was served to guests following Coen’s funeral.  A precious gift to his family, and who lived a full and varied life with a true work ethic at such an early age.

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. Local Government and its services must be recognised and the associated increase in funding applied.The housing crisis, natural disaster management and future planning, climate change, energy resources and future needs, constitutional recognition of First Nations peoples, democracy today, the Ukraine war, were only some of the thought provoking presentations. 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. ...
