RE­FILL STA­TIONS

Some re­lief in that coun­cil has pro­vided a list of wa­ter re­fill points to pri­vate prop­erty res­i­dents for small do­mes­tic quan­ti­ties of wa­ter.

Coun­cil is work­ing with com­mer­cial providers to de­ter­mine wa­ter sup­ply point is­sues for the worst af­fected ar­eas and will con­tinue to work in close part­ner­ship with Uni­ty­wa­ter.

Res­i­dents liv­ing on wa­ter tanks are en­cour­aged to take ad­van­tage of the re­fill sta­tions and to also take on­go­ing ac­tion to pre­serve their cur­rent sup­plies.

A full list of wa­ter re­fill sta­tions is avail­able on coun­cil’s web­site sun­shinecoast.qld.gov.au.

RE­MAIN VIG­I­LANT

The re­cent bush­fires are a timely re­minder of how im­por­tant it is for our com­mu­nity to re­main vig­i­lant dur­ing pe­ri­ods of hot, dry weather. A fire ban is in place, so if you do see any early signs of fire call 000.

PLAY­GROUND

I re­cently joined Cr Roger­son and Cr McKay to of­fi­cially open the new ‘Whip­bird Walk’ at the Ma­roochy Re­gional Bush­land Botan­i­cal Gar­dens.

The ex­pe­ri­en­tial gar­den in­cor­po­rates nat­u­ral play and in­ter­pre­ta­tive art­work de­signed to en­gage, in­trigue and amuse chil­dren’s imag­i­na­tions whilst also pro­vok­ing a cu­rios­ity of na­ture - I en­cour­age you all to visit!

MEET AND GREET

Thanks to the res­i­dents who came for a chat at my Meet and Greet ses­sion held at Ewen Mad­dock Dam re­cently.

Plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment en­quiries, a lo­cal sport­ing club catch up and recre­ation uses were top­ics of in­ter­est.

The next ses­sion is planned for Thurs­day 16 Novem­ber from 10am-noon for the sub­urbs of Caloundra West.
