Be prepared for fires and lack of water
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.
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.
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.
