Council Meeting October 5th, 2011

October 3rd, 2011

Can’t believe it is October already… and we have a meeting this week in Hervey Bay to consider items as follows..

The response to a petition re sealing the intersection of Yachtsmans Dve and Fisher Rd.

We receive the resurfacing program with many roads listed for resealing throughout the region.

Allerton Rd, Booral sealing is recommended. This is a road that the entire Booral community has requested be sealed as it a safe alternative exit for them onto the River Heads Rd. I am very pleased to see this recommendation.

We will decide about participating in the 50 ; 50 Vision which is an initiative to see Councils provide for gender equity. This subject always makes me feel uncomfortable. I don’t like targetting employee levels in relation to sex. I much prefer employment be merit based with no discrimination on age, race or any other personal quality! People should only target a specific group of people based on common interests not ones sex or ones heritage etc… (my personal view of course).

The Local Laws are listed for adoption. This has been a very long and consultation intensive process so I hope the community is satisfied with the result.

The Fraser Coast Airports Master Plan and Development is also listed for adoption. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

The agenda should be listed on the web site by lunch time today.

On a personal note. Yes our house is listed for sale. Yes we are moving but not very far. We are downsizing to a smaller block and eventually a smaller house, but closer to the water. I adore Dundowran Beach and don’t ever want to leave here. It is a hectic time buying a bare block and not being able to build immediately so interesting times ahead for us…

Don’t forget to keep an eye on doings via Facebook. I have a personal page and a Councillor Sue Brooks page. You can see photos of the Orchid Show and Burrum Heads Skate Ramp opening. Wonderful events on Saturday and a credit to our hard working volunteers. Wonderful orchids, Bromeliads and Bonsai and a skate ramp being enjoyed by all the local Burrum kids. A great weekend!

    Hi Sue,

    I’m not sure if your facebook pages are linked here anywhere (I couldn’t find them). Maybe you could add them to your “Contact” section of the blog?

    I don’t drop in here often but enjoy catching up with your blogging when I do.
