Call for Audit Committee members

The Fraser Coast Regional Council is calling for expressions of interest from people who would like to sit on its Audit Committee.
The structure of the existing audit committee had to change with the introduction of the new Local Government Act on July 1. A committee member has also resigned requiring a replacement.
Under the new Act the number of Councillors sitting on the committee has been limited to two, plus two external members. The committee meets four times a year. Expressions of interest close on 30 September 2010 and should be forwarded to the Council’s CEO outlining your relelvant experience and skills. Further information is available from Council’s Internal Auditor Graham Jeffery on 4197 4547.

Get ready for National Youth Week 2011!

The theme for National Youth Week from 1 – 10 April 2011 is “Own It” and the Council wants young people to do just that by helping to plan the Fraser Coast’s celebrations. A meeting will soon be held to discuss ideas. Watch this eNewsletter and the Council’s website to find out how you can get involved. For more information contact the Council’s Youth Development Officer Sue Lawler on 4190 4330 or Youth Services Officer Patrice Bates on 4190 5806.

Young people rejuvenate Rainbow Gully Community Garden

The once languishing Rainbow Gully Community Garden, off Oleander Drive in Hervey Bay, is bursting into orderly growth again. Young participants in the Hervey Bay Community Solutions’ Get Set For Work program, with the help of the Fraser Coast Regional Council, are clearing, replanting, mulching and nurturing the two-hectare garden back to its original glory. Watch that space as it develops into a gem of a park that we can all enjoy.
