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

1080 Baiting Program March 2020

Gympie Regional Council’s biannual coordinated 1080 Baiting Program will again be conducted throughout the region in March and again in September 2020. The first round will commence on Tuesday 17 March and all interested rural landholders are asked to contact Council by the 6 March to check your eligibility and register for participation.

Please use the ‘Baiting Station Schedule’ to determine bait preparation locations/stations and associated dates (below) and come to your registered station on the chosen date with your fresh meat baits (wild dog and fox 250g, feral pig 500g) ready for preparation.

1080 baiting is targeted to rural lands control of wild dogs, feral pigs and foxes, which can cause impacts to both primary production and natural systems alike. Broad scale collaborative baiting on a regular basis assists with effective control outcomes. Landholders who wish to participate in the program must be eligible, register with Council, undertake notifications to neighbouring properties and comply with a series of use conditions. All participants (new or existing) are asked to contact Council to register for each and every program.
