Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 8 February 2023

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest
Our region was a buzz over Australia Day, and congratulations must go to the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail – Australia Day ride which attracted 450 attendees on the day, making it the largest event ever run on the rail trail; Kilcoy Race Club held the Australia Day Races and the Kilcoy Gift attracting a very large crowd and approximately 60 professional competing sprinters; congratulations to all Australia Day Award nominees, to be nominated is a complete honour, and greetings to our new Australian Citizens. Well done to our pool managers and local businesses who supported this great annual event.

Yowie parkrun celebrated its fourth anniversary on Saturday 4th February. Around 70 energetic supporters arrived to take part in the event, and around 35 of those supporters were from out of the region. The visitors enjoyed the town’s cafes and restaurants, and some of them stayed overnight.

Officers from the @Queensland Reconstruction Authority will be in Somerset from 20 February checking on homes and businesses damaged by the 2022 South East Queensland Rainfall and Flooding event.
Damage assessment and reconstruction monitoring audits are an important part of the recovery process and are conducted at regular intervals following significant disasters.
If residents are not home or available when a QRA officer visits, a calling card will be left containing information about the assessment, community recovery and reconstruction.

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
