So many came out to the June meeting in spite of the wet weather. The questionnaire sent to financial members regarding earlier meeting times was not resolved – so for the next few months the 7pm will remain and will be addressed again later in the year.
Our area had lots of good news this month with the council budget planning to finance so many improvements here in the coming year.
The company relining the sewer mains are called Interfit – their trucks are already visible in the area as they are onto this already, and of course there is always ongoing capital works and repairs.
Other new projects are as mentioned in the media. It’s a great win, win for the area!
Our Father’s Day raffle is set to commence on Saturday July 25 at Woolworth’s. 1st prize: $200 dollar gift voucher from Mitre 10 Cooloola Cove; 2nd prize: $100 dollar gift voucher from Cooloola Coast Tyre Brake & Auto; 3rd prize: Case of Crown Lager and $30 dollar gift voucher from Thirsty Camel.
Recently three members attended a special CCCLDMSG ‘fire disaster’ workshop. What came out of the (CC only) exercise was that our local residents here are extremely vulnerable to fire-especially if it happened suddenly and is headed our way! We would all be evacuated immediately to the safest venues (domestic pets are allowed!).
Emergency services can only help us so much if we are cut off – we as individuals have to be prepared- no time to take anything if it’s not already packed -just GO! Keep enough fuel in your car at all times.
It may be smoke that is of more concern to many with health issues, so consider buying smoke masks – just in case. Our neighbours, residents from Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay, are also vulnerable if it headed their way.
Next meeting: 7pm Thursday, July 9, Veterans’ & Community Hall, Cooloola Cove
