 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 8 September 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 With the announcement that Anglicare will not support disabled clients in the coming months, the Kilcoy community has voiced its displeasure, and Anglicare has appeared to have listened.  I have been contacted by service providers who are in a position to provide a service to Kilcoy and district.  We move forward with a co-operative approach from all key stakeholders.

I have received positive comments from local businesses around the valuable service offered by Council’s Business Recovery Officer Mr Paul Misipeka.  This is a new venture for our region, and one that is being valued by our local businesses.  I look forward to very rewarding outcomes, and I encourage all businesses to take the time to have an in-depth discussion with Mr Misipeka.

An interesting meeting was held with the Kilcoy Race Club, where we were made aware of the compliance issues raised by Racing Queensland and applicable to Country racing.

Peak Services’ Long Drive for Drought kicked off in Brisbane on Friday 27 August with a convoy of 30, 40-Series Land Cruisers to make the 3000 km trip in a loop throughout the state’s central west.  Last year the inaugural event raised $50,000 for drought relief, this year it is hoped that $80,000 is reached.  So pleased SRC was able to make a donation of $1,000.

I wish to thank the Kilcoy Indoor Sports Centre Steering Committee members for taking the time to make the facility tour of the Morayfield Sports & Events Centre on 27th August.  These inspections definitely assist the overall identification of needs and will result in a successful planning project.

Sponsors shared a lovely morning tea with the students who took on the arduous local Kokoda Track, either the 30 km or the 96 km trek.  Well done to all the students, teachers and support crew, what a fantastic effort, and I hope to be at the finishing lines next year.  My sponsor pack included a colourful polo shirt, which I will wear with pride.

I look forward to receiving my second vaccination Pfizer when West Moreton Health returns to Esk from 21st to 25th September.  Mention must be made of the 2057 locals who rolled up their sleeves to become vaccination over the five day period at the Esk clinic.  As of 5 September, stats printed reveal that LGA Somerset region is positioned 18th  with 51.1% of population (15 years plus) vaccinated and 27.8% fully vaccinated.

Congratulations to the outgoing management committee for a job well done, and welcome to the incoming management committee of the Kilcoy P A & I Society.
