THREE YEARS OF PAIN? THREE YEARS OF GAIN? YOUR CHOICE!!

 Our Team at Reclaim Caboolture Shire has worked tirelessly with all colours of government for five years to obtain a fair deal for our residents who sit in the dark to save power costs - who have been saving water by using water tanks - only to suffer escalating cost of living rises beyond belief..

We met regularly with members and ministers of parliament to ask for assistance.

500 MBRC residents gathered at the Bribie RSL to be told that no help was available. No major party was prepared to listen.

Your Senior politicians ignored their own supporters to pursue agendas devised by bureaucrats..

Campbell Newman/Tim Nicholls promised to reinstate 21 viable councils before his election..The hurdles were so hard to overcome that only four councils were reinstated within an impossible time frame.

Now - all four are providing employment for their young and old constituents.

A Boundaries Commission was formed to ensure that bureaucrats would not be subjected to further stresses imposed by deamalgamation requests..

LNP then sold the Main Roads building at below value - staff did not leave their desks - rentback was above average. They left our state with an added 9 billion dollar increase in debt.

Please note that senior bureaucrats refuse to make any effort to implement new party policies unless little effort is required.

On application this group was refused information requested re numbers of CEO'searning $300k or more annually..

Who are we really voting for?

Meetings with ALP candidates before the last election were wasted - assurances of interest in local government issues fell on deaf ears after the election. The Boundaries Commission was again called in to refuse further personal stress.

After amalgamation country Queensland is in poverty - young people have no local work opportunities and our roads and public transport are overcrowded by those who have to travel to major coastal centres  at great cost to survive..Nambour was so badly affected that main street shopfronts became available for rent at no charge for one year..

Country kids have no local council jobs available - country stores have closed - no local workers buy lunches - buy groceries - or have a local coffee shop to visit..

Peter Beattie still boasts about his his council amalgamations.. shame. Every time we hear politicians crying JOBS -JOBS -JOBS - WEEP!

Apologies to the 152,000 visitors to this website -we were unable to recommend a political party worth your support..

JOBS issues revolve around Local Government in country areas.

All Gone. The only party to ask for a local government policy was One Nation! No high spending promises - no bull No lies!

VOTING IS OVER - NOT SO! POSTAL VOTES WILL CONTINUE TO ARRIVE UNTIL 6TH DECEMBER -

RORTING STILL POSSIBLE FOR A FEW DAYS YET - TAKE CARE!

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - HELD AT B.I.R.S.L. - MON 28-7-14

Colin explains the Local Government Alliance and RCS membership of the Statewide Group.

My comments on the recent approval of the MBRC regional plan by Minister Trad without amendment and without conditions.

Ken Park

IF I MIGHT INTERRUPT THE COUNCILLORS’ ORGY OF MUTUAL BACK SLAPPING WITH A TASTE OF REALITY......

YES, YOU DID FOOL THE PUBLIC AND YES YOU DID CON THE STATE GOVERNMENT INTO APPROVING YOUR PERFECT REGIONAL PLAN, WITHOUT EVEN A COMMA BEING CHANGED.

SO WHY NOW, BEFORE THE INK HAS EVEN DRIED, IS IT NECESSARY TO UNDERTAKE MAJOR AMENDMENTS TO 21 SEPARATE AREAS OF THE PLAN;

MAJOR AMENDMENTS, SIGNIFICANT REVIEWS.


 

BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD IMMEDIATELY INSTEAD OF WAITING FOR THE NORMAL 10 YEAR CYCLE FOR A GOOD PLAN.

PERHAPS IT WASN’T ALL THAT GOOD AFTER ALL?

AS USUAL, THERE WAS NO PUBLIC CONSULTATION OR PARTICIPATION IN DECIDING THE AREAS TO BE REVIEWED AND AMENDED, NOR ARE RATEPAYERS TO PARTICIPATE IN THESE REVIEWS -

UNTIL IT IS ANOTHER “TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT” DONE DEAL.


 

PUTTING LOCAL BACK INTO LOCAL GOVERNMENT

The ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of Reclaim Caboolture Shire Inc was held at the Bribie Island R.S.L Anzac Room at 10 a.m. on Monday 28th July.

Election of Officers resulted in the appointment of Ken Park - as Chairman/President - Alan Preo as Secretary and Leo Barraclough was reappointed as Treasurer and Webmaster.

Ian Morrison who had acted as Chairman/President until the meeting, conducted the proceedings.

Ian was unable to continue in the Chairmans position owing to work and family committments. Ian will stay with us as a valued Committee member.

Dennis Johnson offers ongoing petition signing from his Bongaree Coffee shop at 15 First Avenue Bongaree. Dennis remains on our committee. Thanks Mate!

We hope our members join your local Bribie daily Forum.

Basil Jeffreys retired from the Chair owing to health issues and was given a glowing vote of thanks for his two years of leadership. Bas was appointed Patron of our team.

Basil, unable to attend, plans to continue his work of liaison with business management and group supporters on our behalf now he is on the mend.

NEW MEMBERS: We were pleased that continued confidence in our activities resulted in the acceptance of new members on the day. Welcome Bill O'Brien and Barbara Mantaan.

QLGRA: Guest Speaker Colin Hewitt from that group (see page and photo on this site) spoke at length of accelerating progress at state level.

Colin is coordinating all Shires seeking release from their undemocratic and unwanted forced amalgamation.

Both Port Douglas and Noosa are bounding ahead after winning their freedom.

CHAIRMAN: Ken Park outlined a list of his activities with all tiers of government including the ongoing problem of dealing with unsatisfactory and inaccurate information emanating from Council and Unity Water.

WATER GROUP: Leo and Basil attended the Water Group meetings with Lisa France, Mark McArdle and interested parties. Two ladies from Unity Water attended the last meeting.

It is worthy of note that the ladies combined incomes exceed $400,000 annually. It was surprising that the ladies were unable to recognise areas where Unity Water could make savings.

WEBSITE: Leo reported that the website had received 48,545 visitors in 18 months. Visitor numbers vary between 900 and 1250 weekly depending on the volume and interest value of material added.

The site is our most practical way of keeping members informed. We have a newsletter mailing system to maintain contact with our members who have no email address.

Members were advised that very welcome contributions remain confidential.

FACEBOOK: We have a facebook page but  many of our "Friends" are not of voting age, Our page has been modified to carry a referral to this online  website.

Facebook and Twitter tend to be personally invasive and time consuming when a business outcome is a major objective..

An expert and dedicated creative Social Media person is on our wish list. Applications invited! Please help!

Chaiman Park closed the meeting with a motion of thanks to the RSL for the use of their excellent meeting facility and a thank you to all who attended..
