City prepared for large swells as conditions worsen

City prepared for large swells as conditions worsen

The Gold Coast is well prepared for large swells expected to impact our beaches later this week. “The sand dredging and pumping we have done over the past two years has added millions of cubic metres of sand to our beaches,’’ said Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate. “The dredge alone placed three millions cubic metres along the beaches. “I am confident we are in good shape ready for the large swells. This has been placed there over the years specific to helping with significant scarping but I am confident we won’t need to access that reserve.’’ Mayor Tate said two major beach/seawall restoration works underway – at Narrowneck and Surfers Paradise – were also under control. “We will place some sand at the ocean side of these to keep the swells away. The construction sites are being prepared now to combat any swell.

TRC extends rates relief for eligible primary producers

Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) today unanimously extended its deferral of rate notice payments for eligible primary producers who are experiencing severe drought conditions. “A hot and dry summer has compounded many producers’ immediate outlook and Council is well aware of the ongoing financial and emotional strains that exist across these communities,” Mayor Antonio said. “The Toowoomba Region has been drought-declared for more than four years and unfortunately the short term outlook does not offer the prospect of any substantial rain or a financial return for farming enterprises.” TRC Finance and Business Strategy Committee Chair Cr Mike Williams echoed the Mayor’s comments and said Council had a history of responding to residents who had experienced adversity due to extreme climatic conditions.

Toowoomba Regional Council calls for larger allocation of Federal taxation

“This will reverse the 20 year erosion of Federal support, and allow local governments to better deliver services and maintain essential infrastructure for their communities.” In total local councils raise 3% of all the taxation revenue in Australia and are required to manage 33% of public assets. “There are high expectations on local government and it’s vital we receive an equitable allocation of funding from the upper levels to support local government organisations throughout Australia,” Mayor Antonio said. We will continue to advocate for our fair share of funding to achieve the best results for our community.” The motion to support the LGAQ and ALGA campaign was passed unanimously at the Ordinary Meeting of Council on 19 February 2019.
