Council Takes Action To Protect Its Volunteers

In an unprecedented move, and in response to COVID-19, Council has decided to suspend all volunteering activities throughout its libraries and at the Gympie Regional Gallery, as well as to close its visitor information centre.

This will take effect from Monday, 23 March 2020.

Council CEO, Bernard Smith, said that protecting Council staff and volunteers while continuing to provide services to our community is a difficult balance.

“We want to continue to serve our community, but if that puts our volunteers and staff at risk, we must take action,” he said.

While the Visitor Information Centre will be closing its doors until further notice, Council will introduce a new ‘call and collect’ service so it can continue to support the community.

The ‘call and collect’ service will give people the opportunity to call through with their questions and queries about a location, accommodation or an activity. The staff member will then gather information, flyers and brochures and have them ready for collection through one of the centre’s windows.

The service will be available from 10am-3pm Monday to Friday, and 10am -2pm Saturday and Sunday and will operate until further notice. To take advantage of this service, call the Visitor Information Centre on 1800 444 222.


The Visitor Information Centre will also leave copies of their most popular brochures and flyers outside the centre so information can be accessible outside these hours.

The Council libraries and the Gympie Regional Gallery will continue with their usual opening hours; however, all programs, events and activities have been cancelled.

A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 27 May 2020 A message from Mayor Glen Hartwig - Wednesday, 27 May 2020

From today, people across our region and the country will celebrate National Reconciliation Week. Although COVID - 19 may change the way we get together, it doesn’t change how we can reflect and acknowledge our history, our culture, our achievements and how each of us can individually contribute towards reconciliation in Australians.

In these COVID-19 times, Council will acknowledge the week a little differently. Today at our Council Ordinary Meeting, which will be live streamed, we will have a special acknowledgement of Country, we will commemorate Sorry Day and mark the commencement of Reconciliation Week.

 

Aunty Lillian Burke Butchulla Elder and President of Cooloola Aboriginal Services Inc. will share her story of the Stolen Generations and what reconciliation means for her. I’m very much looking forward to hearing Aunty Lillian speak and to Council continuing to work with traditional owners and indigenous groups across the region.

We will also be streaming a Reconciliation Week musical event from 7pm this Friday, live from the Civic Centre, plus other activities such as digital storytelling for our local schools. If you’d like to know more, head to the Council website.

The last few weeks have been very busy for Councillors. We are continuing to work on the budget as our priority. There have been some great conversations and I’m really proud of the work Councillors and staff are doing as we work on one of the toughest budgets we’ve seen.  We are focused on the core services and getting these right for you, our residents. It’s not going to be an easy job and some very hard decisions made as we look at how we can best serve the community.

Mayor Glen Hartwig
