COUN­CIL held its staff Christ­mas party at Eidsvold last Satur­day.

The event was or­gan­ised by the of­fice in Eidsvold and took place at the bowls club with the bowls ladies ca­ter­ing to a very high stan­dard. Thank you ladies. All staff mem­bers and their fam­i­lies were in­vited, and a large num­ber at­tended to en­joy a great meal and a very am­a­teur­ish but en­joy­able game of bowls.

The en­ter­tain­ment was pro­vided by Rob Bram­ley.

At­ten­dance was vol­un­tary with the in­ten­tion of the coun­cil to thank its work­force.

A meet­ing was also held with the Min­is­ter for Po­lice and Emer­gency Ser­vices, Jack Dempsey, and the con­cern about the SES cadets was dis­cussed.

The group will re­main as is for the next 12 months un­der a dif­fer­ent ban­ner be­fore a new group­ing will be put in place that will in­cor­po­rate th­ese ba­sic prin­ci­pals and be im­ple­mented across the state.

The Min­is­ter took note of the lack of ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cers in the po­lice sta­tions at Gayn­dah and Biggen­den and will act on this mat­ter.

No­tice has been re­ceived that the government will not force coun­cils to add flu­o­ride to water sup­plies and those coun­cils that al­ready have it will have to de­cide whether or not to keep it in place.

Iwould ap­pre­ci­ate it if peo­ple would let their di­vi­sional coun­cil­lors know their thoughts on the mat­ter

At a func­tion held in Bund­aberg last week, three North Bur­nett or­gan­i­sa­tions re­ceived recog­ni­tion for their work by the Queens­land Mu­seum and Art Gal­leries.

Monto His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, Eidsvold His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and Mt Perry Mu­seum were awarded cer­tifi­cates for their great work.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the many vol­un­teers in­volved.
