Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 28 October 2020

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

Along with my daughter and granddaughters, I attended the Curious Festival held at the Empire Theatre, Toowoomba on Saturday 17 October. This was a great family event with lots of entertainment, bubbles and fun. I appreciated the festival theme – “the future belongs to the curious”. Council has been fortunate with the recent collaboration with this establishment and the opportunity for our local youth who are interested in the arts to take part in the Empire Youth Theatre right here in Esk.

A local resident reported the story of the little tractor and trailer on route around our region. The driver and his offsider are fundraising for a charity. The gentleman is known as The Travelling Jackaroo and is collecting for and supporting Dolly’s Dream. He has been welcomed to the Dolly’s Dream fundraising team in an effort not only to raise funds, but also raise important awareness against bullying. The Travelling Jackaroo plans to complete a trip around Australia raising funds.

It may be reflective of the COVID times; however, a local real estate was number one rural selling agent in Australia for the month of October. Well done to the team.

Agenda Item # 34 Councillors’ Report
October
19 Linville – Exercise group
20 Kilcoy State High School – Review
20 Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare Group Monthly Meeting

A recent request I made on behalf of our residents and supported by the two Kilcoy schools for a continuation in an identified school bus service was rejected by DTMR. The department outlined the reasons why the request was denied and offered advice as to how to approach this matter in the future.

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. ...
