Calling all community groups

APPLY NOW for festive season Community Assistance Grants -  The 2020 festive season may seem a way away, but Council is already putting the call out to community groups who are planning to run festive season projects and events.
Round Two of the Community Assistance Grants Program officially opened 3 February. Community groups who are wanting to host Christmas, New Year, or other festive-season projects or events must apply as part of this round. Applications close 16 March. 
There will not be another opportunity to apply for festive-season grants this calendar year.
Eligible, not-for-profit community groups can apply for a maximum of $1,000 for eligible festive-season projects and events. 
If your group is not gearing up for Christmas, consider how your organisation could benefit from financial assistance under the other categories: Community Capacity Building, Facilities Development, Equipment or Community Events. 
The last round of Community Assistance Grants resulted in more than $88,000 going to 26 local community groups. Some of the recipients included:
Goomeri Lions Club Inc.
$1,000 for Christmas in the park
Gympie & District Indoor Bowls Association Inc.
$9,039 to improve access to their indoor centre
Mary Valley Trailblazers Inc. 
$2,000 for equipment
Coolarts Inc.
$5,000 for the Faerie Festival 2020
Gympie Squash Racquets Association Inc.
$1,743 for an electronic scoring system
Community Assistance Grants guidelines can be downloaded from Council’s website https://www.gympie.qld.gov.au/grants. Applications for Round Two close Monday, 16 March 2020.

Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 12th February 2020 Mayor's Column - Wednesday, 12th February 2020

The old saying that ‘a week is a long time in politics’ was particularly true again at the federal level this week. Those issues aside, the Gympie region, like all others across the state, is gearing up for our local elections.  

These elections give the wider community the opportunity and democratic right to select the candidate that they wish to have a leadership role in the management of their community for the next four years.  

I would urge all residents to do their research on all candidates and get to know who they will be casting their vote for as the election date of 28 March fast approaches.  
I would also urge residents to heed another old saying; ‘actions speak louder than words’.  

Representing your constituents and the wider community as a duly elected councillor, in my opinion, is one of the greatest honours that could be bestowed upon an individual, however it is certainly not a popularity contest and nor should it be.  

Difficult decisions need to be made which will draw the ire of some while benefitting the majority.  You will be subjected to much more scrutiny and gossip than your family and friends will ever be.  
You will be required to adhere to stringent laws, policies and procedures which you may not have been required to previously.  But on the upside, you will represent your community and have a say and a role in delivering community services, projects and infrastructure for the benefit of the wider community and the region.  
Current councillors, over this term of council, should be proud of their contributions.  

I wish each and every resident who nominates to lead this community at the forth coming elections, all the very best. 

Mayor Mick Curran
