HOWARD GIVES TO FLOOD APPEAL @ AUCTION IN PEPPERS RESORT HERVEY BAY

A property auction last week at the Peppers Resort Hervey Bay saw a number of properties passed in .

What was sold was a voucher for 2 for accommodation with champagne, chocolates and breakfast for two nights at the resort.

Who else but yours truly Henry Sapiecha submitted the highest bid for the  above prize and the money was generously donated by the Peppers Resort to the Queensland flood appeal.

I need now to find someone to share the 3 days & 2 nights with at the resort

Howard once again gives to a worthy cause

starting point to develop the local laws that are on display.”

FRASER COAST COUNCIL REQUESTS INPUT ON LOCAL FLOOD RESPONSE BY THEIR TEAM

25 January 2011
Residents of the Fraser Coast to have their say on flood response


The Fraser Coast Regional Council wants to hear from residents about the recent Mary River flood.
“The flood tested our emergency response plan,” Mayor Mick Kruger said.
“While most of our response went smoothly and according to the plan, there are certainly areas where we think we can improve.”
One area for improvement is Council’s ability to get information on flood heights as the water flows down the river, Cr Kruger said.
Since the flood waters have receded Council has conducted two debriefing sessions to obtain feedback. One debriefing session was held with emergency services and government agencies and a separate session was held with Council staff.
“We also want to hear from residents,” Cr Kruger said.
“We’d like to know what you think were good points of the flood response as well as where you think the response could have been improved.”
Residents can email their views to [email protected]; fill in an on-line response form under the Have Your Say section of the Council website www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au or contact a Customer Service Officer on 1300 79 49 29 to have their feedback recorded.
“People will be able to lodge their responses until close of business on Friday, February 18,” Cr Kruger said.
“All the responses will be considered during a review of Council’s Local Disaster Management Plan which is conducted after an incident.”
