Plan for future of town in our hands
POLITICS, mud-slinging and the many audible groans aside, it was fantastic to see the Isis Club overflowing with patrons for Tuesday night’s AGM.
More than 200 people voted in the election, which saw a completely new board sweep to power.
Being new to the area, I’m not fully across the history of what has happened in the past few years at the Isis Club, but hopefully Tuesday’s vote is the start of much smoother sailing.
My focus is not who is or isn’t on the board, or who is running the show, mine is on the people of Childers.
In my first few weeks here I have been told that Childers is a community like no other.
If the people of Childers want something, it is the people of Childers who will band together and get it.
It’s refreshing to see so many people take the time out to show they care about their area – there is nothing this community can’t do.
Bundaberg Regional Council’s proposed planning scheme is open to submissions from the public until November 28.
Based on community meetings in the area, there hasn’t been too much of a turnout, and my fear is people will not have had their say before it’s too late.
If the town can rally for an AGM, surely that same group can rally for the document that will shape future decisions affecting your home town.
