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.
