Cape York residents fed up with poor service

Telstra a disgrace By MATT NICHOLLS

ENOUGH is enough. Telstra’s disdain and blatant disrespect of Cape York residents needs to stop. Another item was added to the long list of grievances last week when Telstra was caught trying to

sneak through a development application for a 26.4-metre phone tower in Cooktown’s main street. No newspaper notices, just a very late sign installation and some snail mail to next-door neighbours. In the process, it appears Telstra has breached the state government’s Planning Act 2016.

annually, but good luck making a 10-minute phone call without getting disconnected. This appalling service comes from a company that was fined $50 million because it knowingly targeted and ripped off Indigenous people in remote communities. Telstra is also the business that

begs for federal funding to erect towers in remote areas because they won’t fork out themselves. For the record, the Archer River Roadhouse still doesn’t have its taxpayer-funded Telstra tower. Enough is enough. Cape York deserves better from Telstra. Phone tower story – Page 3

Telstra wants to erect a 26.4-metre phone tower on this block of land, situated on the corner of Walker and Charlotte streets in Cooktown’s CBD.

Sneaky Telstra expected to cop wrath of residents By MATT NICHOLLS

COOK Shire Council will be left with no choice but to reject a proposed Telstra tower after the telecommunications company tried to sneak the application past the public’s eye. Telstra wants to erect a 26.4-metre phone tower on the main street of Cooktown, which has drawn the ire of local residents and businesses after it was brought to their attention on social media last week. It’s clear Telstra didn’t want them to find out. In a likely breach of the state government’s Planning Act 2016, Telstra failed to advertise its development application in any local newspaper, or place notices on the property in a reasonable time frame. Section 53 of the Act says development applications that are impact assessable or that include a variation request must be publicly notified in the way or ways stated in the Development Assessment Rules. Under section 17.1 of the DA Rules, the applicant, or the assessment manager acting on behalf of the applicant must give public notice by (emphasis added) –

The sign went up after May 12, according to local residents.

(a) publishing a notice at least once in a newspaper circulating generally in the locality of the premises the subject of the application; and (b) placing notice on the premises the subject of the application that must remain on the premises for the period of time up to and including the stated day; and (c) giving notice to the adjoining owners of all lots adjoining the premises the subject of the application. Telstra’s development application notice period runs from May 12 to June 2 (Thursday), but neighbouring properties did not receive notice until well after May 12.

The sign on the property, located on the corner of Walker and Charlotte streets, was also erected after May 12. To date, there has been no notice in the Cape York Weekly or the New Cooktown Independent newsletter. Gungarde Community Centre Aboriginal Corporation has an office opposite the Telstra block and is against a tower being erected on the site. CEO Greg Whittaker has written an objection to Cook Shire Council and hopes other businesses and ratepayers do the same. He passed on a copy of his objection to Cape York Weekly. “All board directors unani-

mously voted against this massive tower being erected adjacent to Gungarde’s property,” Mr Whittaker wrote on behalf of the board. “What an eyesore this tower would create in the main street of Cooktown. “There are other suitable sites that already house Telstra towers; why can’t this service be located onto the new tower just completed on the outskirts of Cooktown, or another location outside of the town on a hill or higher ground than the proposed site?” Cook Shire mayor Peter Scott said he was unimpressed with Telstra’s attitude towards informing the public. “I thought it could have been advertised ... I hadn’t even heard it was happening until I spoke to Greg,” he said. “They have a brand new tower in the middle of town so I’m not sure why they couldn’t use that. I haven’t even spoken to Telstra about this.” Cr Scott said he was expecting the council to receive a flood of objections from members of the Cooktown community that were against a 26-metre tower in the main street. Submissions close on Thursday.

Helping hand to achieve dreams COOKTOWN teenager Sienna Thomason has been awarded this year’s Endeavour Award grant. The young achiever was a standout applicant, Endeavour Lions Club president Jim Fay said at last week’s ceremony. The Endeavour Award grants one person aged 16 to 21 in the 4895 postcode $4000 to help achieve their goals, either academically or personally. “Sienna’s application met and exceeded the criteria specifications with shining references from the volunteer organisations she has been long affiliated with,” Mr Fay said. “Over the years, Sienna has volunteered with Reef Check Australia and South Cape

York Catchments and plans on developing her on-board skills capacity by obtaining her diving certificates, boat licence and first aid course required for a more inclusive handson experience with these organisations.” Mr Fay said the panel of judges deliberated over the applications received and were impressed with the motivation behind them, making it difficult to come to a decision. “However, Sienna’s paperwork stood out, mainly to do with the presentation and execution of the criteria we needed to assess the applications,” he said. “The judges wish all applicants the very best in achieving their desired goals and acknowledge the effort spent in applying.”

Refurb project a winner for Wik Warriors THE Aurukun Wik Warriors program is working with mining company Rio Tinto to convert out-of-commission buildings to help establish a skills-based employment and training program and replica mining camp. The repurposing of the Rio Tinto Weipa dongas will fulfil Wik Warriors’ need for operating facilities to establish the program. Assistance to procure and re-

purpose the dongas for a mess, kitchen, accommodation and training rooms is being provided after a successful application to the Rio Tinto sponsorship and donations program. The Wik Warriors are aiming to build on the existing training and employment model that has been successfully delivered by RESET (previously known as Kapani) in the community over the past three years.

A focus of the program is to work with communities and agencies to harness community strengths and work collaboratively to create a highly skilled local workforce. The project will create a specific training venue for locals seeking pre-employment training and work readiness in preparation for careers in mining. There is a large bauxite deposit around Aurukun, which is

likely to be mined in the coming decades. The camp will replicate many aspects of on-site living and help prepare participants for work. “Having inspected the dongas, we were extremely impressed by their potential and capacity to fulfil a significant need for program participants and the broader Aurukun community,” said Dr Tim White, the director of RESET.

NEWS IN BRIEF Changes at Lakeland COOK Shire Council has made some major changes to the opening hours at the Lakeland Waste Transfer Station. “Due to large-scale illegal commercial dumping at this site, please be informed that from May 30, the Lakeland Waste Transfer Station will no longer operate as a 24/7 unmanned facility,” the council website reads. Instead of being open all the time, the site will now just open for two hours per day, six days per week, from 7am to 9am, Monday to Saturday. From July 1, the council will also add afternoon hours, from 2pm to 4pm.

New Torres Shire mayor YEN Loban will be the new mayor of the Torres Shire Council after a strong result in Saturday’s by-election. While the Electoral Commission of Queensland had yet to declare the result at the time of press, it appeared that Mr Loban had a strong enough lead. The TSRA board member and former deputy mayor won 45 per cent of the primary vote, ahead of Gabriel Bani (37%) and Ivy Trevallion (18%). The by-election was held after Vonda Malone resigned as mayor to take the CEO role at the Torres Strait Regional Authority.

Widespread flu a bigger problem than COVID-19 By MATT NICHOLLS

CAPE York has a virus problem and it’s not just COVID-19. The flu has been giving health workers grief across the region as hospitals and health clinics struggle to contain a highly contagious strain of Influenza A which is wreaking havoc on schools and workplaces. At Weipa, school attendance has been decimated, while the hospital had to close its aged care facility to the public to protect the residents. The state government re-

sponded last week by announcing that flu shots would be free for all Queenslanders until the end of June. “We have seen how difficult it has been to fight COVID-19,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said. “To fight COVID-19 and the flu is doubly hard. “That’s why we are making these flu shots free for everyone.” Confirmed flu cases are now far outpacing active COVID–19 cases in the Torres and Cape Hospital and Health Service.

As of Thursday, there were 51 active COVID cases within the region, but 272 confirmed cases of the flu. Cape York residents wanting to get their flu vaccination should speak to their GP, pharmacist or health clinic. Sam Harbison, the owner of Live Life Pharmacy in Weipa, said he was well stocked with the flu vaccine but urged locals and tourists to book ahead. “Come in and see us and we can get you an appointment,” he said. Health Minister Yvette D’Ath

said the free vaccines would be available for all Queenslanders aged six months and older. “Flu vaccines are generally not free except for the most vulnerable,” she said. “The fact that more than 4000 cases have already been detected when flu seasons don’t usually begin until late July is very concerning. “Our best defence is to get as many people vaccinated as possible.” She also thanked the professional pharmacy and medical bodies for backing the initiative.

WITH less than two weeks to go until the Weipa Fishing Classic opening, president Aaron Schleich is warning locals that they might miss out on a ticket. “We are definitely going to sell out, it’s just a matter of when,” he said. “We only sell 2200 tickets into the main prize draw and once they are sold there are no more.” The Weipa Fishing Classic opens on Friday, June 10 and closes on June 12. See next week’s paper for a full preview of the event.

Lockhart dancers at CIAF DANCERS from Lockhart River and Boigu Island will help open the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair in July. It promises to be a massive opening night at the revamped Cairns Convention Centre after COVID forced the worldleading art fair to operate online-only for the past two years. Award winners will also be announced, with Cape York expected to have a major presence at the fair. The full program is now available on the CIAF website.

Council stands up to Irwin family By MATT NICHOLLS

COOK Shire Council has refused to be intimidated by lawyers for the Irwin family and Australia Zoo, voting unanimously to keep the track known as Bertiehaugh Road open. The track, accessed via Stones Crossing, north of Weipa, has been a hot issue in the Cape for more than a decade. At last week’s Cook Shire Council meeting, councillors were faced with a road closure application from Silverback Properties, a company owned by Australia Zoo’s Terri Irwin and her family. The Irwins pulled out all stops, too, hiring FC Lawyers to put together a comprehensive document to sway the councillors to vote to close the road. “The road passes through the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, a pristine parcel of land surrounded by areas abolished by mining (sic), and acts as a haven for many species of flora and fauna,” the lengthy legal correspondence read. “The SIWR supports 35 different ecosystems and there are over 40 species of conservation significance which are either threatened by extinction, endemic to the area or have a restricted distribution. “So far, the following have been recorded on the reserve: 21 amphibians, 48 fish species 170 birds, 20 mammals; and 47 reptiles.” At the meeting, it was revealed

A tour bus makes its way through Stones Crossing to access the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. This is the same access point to the track known as Bertiehaugh Road.

Cook Shire was hit with a large Freedom of Information request from FC Lawyers, which took dozens of hours of staff time to fulfil. But the decision to keep the gazetted road open took just minutes. Deputy mayor Robyn Holmes, who chaired the meeting in the absence of Peter Scott, said there was no compelling reason for Cook Shire Council to close the road. “I acknowledge the work the Irwins do in regards to environmental management on that property but there has been strong support

from key stakeholders to keep it open, including TCICA (Torres and Cape Indigenous Councils Alliance),” she said. The motion to keep the road open was moved by Cr Ross Logan and seconded by Cr Peter Burns. ROAD’S HISTORY THERE had been a road through Bertiehaugh Station (now known as the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve) for years while it was a cattle station. When the Irwin family purchased the property in 2007 – with

taxpayer money – it was able to de-gazette the existing road, on the proviso that a new road was gazetted through the property. A line was drawn on a map and most of the road only existed on paper. Last year, a group of Cape York residents pushed through the track using GPS markers. It’s a genuine four-wheel drive track that has already attracted a lot of tourism to the Western Cape, as intended. The Irwins insist people have

Maintenance dredging notice

April - June 2022 | Alert for Weipa community North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) will undertake maintenance dredging from late April at the Port of Weipa. Dredging will also be completed at Amrun on behalf of Rio Tinto. The project will take up to eight (8) weeks to complete. The dredge vessel TSHD Brisbane, as well as support vessels, have restricted manoeuvring capability. Local and visiting boaties are asked to take care and notice of all warning flags and lights. Maintenance dredging needs to be carried out to ensure that safe, navigable shipping depths are maintained. Environmental controls and management measures will be implemented throughout the program to minimise the risk of any potential impact on the marine environment. Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated.

been venturing into their property since the track was opened and want it closed to prevent fires, the spread of weeds and trespassing. With support from the Western Cape Chamber of Commerce, Cook Shire Council is about to erect signs at the entry point of Stones Crossing, urging travellers to do the right thing. The Irwins currently make money from allowing exclusive tour group buses to traverse through their property. They also lease part of the reserve for cattle grazing.

Important funding for the Cape

Cape York is known is for its adventure tourism, mostly through four-wheel drives, motorbikes, quads and buggies. But Cape York Mountain Bike Adventures has become popular. They are flown to Coen and ride all the way to the Tip via the Old Telegraph Track. This was the first trip of 2022, completed last week.

Tourism dollars starting to flow to Cape’s businesses By MATT NICHOLLS

A SLOW tourist season should spring to life in the coming weeks as travellers embark on their trip of a lifetime to Cape York. “People still think Queensland is flooded,” said Bobby Woods, the manager of Hann River Roadhouse, who is hoping for a good tourist season. “They might see the Brisbane floods on the news and think that is all of the state.” Weipa Camping Ground owner Brooke Quartermaine said it was an issue trying to convince people that the Cape was open. “It’s definitely not everyone but some people ring up and ask if they can get here,” she said. “It didn’t help that we had some late rain in the wet season.” Cape York Weekly drove the Peninsula Developmental Road last week and while it has seen better days, it was certainly in good enough condition for just about any roadworthy vehicle to get from Laura to Weipa. The Department of Transport and Main Roads appears to have

worked to get the road open first, with a view to fixing up washed out sections. Drivers might need to pay a little bit more attention until those damaged sections are fixed. The good news for motorists is

there were very few corrugations and there were a number of road crews out and about, meaning the road should be in good condition for the June-July school holidays. Ken Godfrey says Bramwell Station and the roadhouse are run-

ning as per usual, with some concerns voiced after the station was sold to the state government. “Tourists won’t notice one change,” he said. “The tourist park is running as per usual and we’ve got live entertainment every night.” Mr Godfrey has arranged some great acts throughout the season, including Phil Cass, an awardwinning comedy entertainer. “The station talks and buffet are also back, which will keep the tourists happy,” he said. In Weipa, the family-owned and operated Western Cape Eco Tours has a massive year ahead, with the combination of tour bus groups and general tourists filling their vessel. “It’s going to be a busy year but we are looking forward to it,” said owner Mal Slack. “The tourists really like that we are a locally owned and operated business.” Weipa’s Mine and Town Tours started the season shakily after a critical break-down, but the bus is back on the road and is also set for a busy year.

ALMOST $1 million will be provided to 14 First Nations communities in Queensland to look after Country and create new training and job opportunities for Indigenous Australians. Environment Minister Meaghan Scanlon this month announced the latest round of the state government’s Looking after Country grants. “First Nations communities have played a central role in caring for environment, culture and heritage on their Country for tens of thousands of years,” she said. “This is funding that will go directly to First Nations-led projects on-country that look after the environment, create jobs and lay new pathways to gain meaningful skills and training. Funding for Cape York groups included: • The Bromley Aboriginal Corporation, which will use its grant of $74,971 to reintroduce traditional burning practices to their property, including planning, accredited training, and monitoring. • The Muunthiwarra Aboriginal Corporation, based in Cooktown, which will receive $60,500 to reintroduce traditional burning on the Muunthiwarra Clan Estate. The project will undertake ‘Right-way’ fire, also known as cool mosaic burning, to help to protect cultural heritage sites. The Muunthiwarra Traditional Owners will monitor the wildlife population and native vegetation changes. • The Kuuku Ya’u Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC, which will receive $75,000 to undertake weed control including lantana infestation threatening nearby Cape York Peninsula national parks and two beach clean ups with Tangaroa Blue to remove marine debris. The next round of the Looking after Country Grants program is expected to open for applications mid-2022.

Scholarships to aid five students BAMAGA Enterprises Ltd has provided five TAFE scholarships for local students beginning a new step in their career journeys in 2022, assisting them with course fees and study supplies. Chair Robert Poipoi said that through BEL’s Socio Support Policy, the educational scholarships were some of the most critical and rewarding ways for BEL to help relieve financial hardship in the community. “These students are an inspiration for the community and have shown a passion for furthering their skills with the plan to bring new knowledge back with them to Bamaga,” he said. PERFORMING ARTS TWO aspiring performers are included in the batch of TAFE scholarships. Paul Williams said he felt proud to have received his scholarship to study Certificate IV in Performing Arts at Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA), taking him a step closer to achieving his lifelong goal of working in the film industry. Mr Williams’ $1500 scholarship from BEL will assist with accommodation costs and fees for the 12-month course in Brisbane. “Growing up, I was always dancing and enjoyed making people laugh,” he said. “My dream job is to work in the movies as an actor or a film producer in Indigenous movies.”

Paul Williams is an aspiring actor and one of five BEL scholarship recipients.

Mr Williams says while he feels most comfortable in front of the camera, he enjoys performing for live audiences, too. He is looking forward to building on his performing skills focusing on music, dance and drama to become a well-rounded artist. “I’m both excited and nervous for the year ahead. I’ll be missing home a bit, too, but I know I’ve got to keep my head up and stay committed,” he said. Shekinah Newman says she’s

excited to start the same course at ACPA with her cousin Paul. The $1500 of scholarship funds will help with Ms Newman’s tuition, accommodation and educational supplies. “Dancing means a lot to me. It’s a part of our culture. My whole family dances, but I picked up my passion from watching my elder brother and cousins. I loved watching them dance and wanted to be like them. “Coming from a remote com-

Traditional Owners urged to have input at Weipa forum THE Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation is inviting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to attend sessions in Queensland to have their say on how they want to manage Country.

munity means the scholarship will support me in Brisbane to build my skills. “I plan to one day return to the NPA to teach young people in the community. My dream is to open a dance school in Bamaga in memory of my cousin who passed away a few years ago. “She loved to dance and had a big impact on the community. She taught me and a few people in our area and I want to continue her legacy.” SUPPORT SERVICES SAJIDA Nona is enrolled to undertake a Certificate IV in Community Services at TAFE in Cairns. BEL has provided $1000 towards the course fee and purchase of a new laptop. Currently employed in the industry with the NPA Family and Community Services (NPAFCS), Ms Nona is eager to undertake these studies, which she says will assist in her role as community engagement and stakeholder coordinator. “It’s hard to put into words, but I’m just very grateful for the support from BEL and the work they do, especially for locals,” she said. “It’s a very big help, especially as I am the only one in my family that’s working right now, so I will be able to complete the course online. “As a mother with two kids aged under five, BEL has made it much easier to study.”

Another NPAFCS employee Joyce Soki will be furthering her professional and personal development through an online Diploma in Community Services. Ms Soki is currently a support worker. “I’m passionate about helping people, including small, daily things like help to get a job or assisting people with their finances,” she said. “But even the little things count for a lot and the appreciation I get makes me want to help people out even more.” Ms Soki said her 12-month online diploma would assist her in pursuing a management or leadership role where she could train and mentor staff. “I want to thank BEL from the bottom of my heart for this sponsorship.” Bamaga resident Romina Nona has enrolled in the Undergraduate Certificate in Community Support at University of Tasmania. She says despite holding multiple managerial and leadership positions, she felt her lack of tertiary qualification was the “missing link”. After completing the 18-month certificate course, Romina says she plans to complete a Diploma in Counselling. “I’m so grateful for BEL’s support. I want to give back to my community with the help they have given me,” she said.

Wine by the Sea was a winner for kindy LETTER TO THE EDITOR

THE Weipa Early Childhood Education Association would like to thank all volunteers, families and sponsors of their annual Wine by the Sea fundraiser held on May 21. The Wine by the Sea committee hosted a fabulous Arabianthemed event with the assistance of some amazing community organisations including the Weipa Police (security), Weipa Rodeo committee (bar) and Vandana Chaturvedi and Sruthi Anumula

(who volunteered their time to provide Henna). Earlier this month, Weipa Community Kindergarten and Preschool received notice from the Assessment and Rating process that was recently conducted at the service, receiving an Exceeding Rating against the National Quality Standards. The money raised at fundraising events such as Wine by the Sea will ensure Weipa Community Kindergarten has the capacity to continue to deliver innovative and high-quality edu-

cational programs conducive to the philosophy, quality improvement plan and high expectations staff uphold in the service. At the kindy we aim to instil a sense of belonging within the children so that they have the opportunity to develop predispositions of learning in preparation for the formal education system. We believe that kindy is a place to make friends, explore new environments, engage in new opportunities, build resilience, make connections and

build a sense of autonomy. Moving forward, Weipa Community Kindergarten’s new learning journey includes the implementation of the state government’s Kindy Uplift program, which based on the data and needs within the service and local communities, will see all staff engage in further professional development opportunities to improve educational outcomes against key priority areas. – C&K Weipa Community Kindergarten director Danielle Thompson

Award winner Michael Brooker with friends and colleagues at the Noreen Wilcox Awards in Cairns last week.

Life-changing teacher is recognised with award MICHAEL Brooker is walking proof that you don’t need to have a traditional pathway to become a teacher that makes a great impact on students. Mr Brooker, or “Kimba” as he is best known around town, was last week announced as a worthy winner at the prestigious Noreen Wilcox Awards. One of the most popular members of the Western Cape College staff, Mr Brooker has spent almost two decades at the school, largely teaching senior students automotive skills. He has been a pioneer for the state’s education system in many ways.

Mr Brooker was such a natural with the kids that the school had to fight to get him working as a teacher because he held no formal education qualifications. But his success story has paved the way for others who have become teachers from non-traditional backgrounds. The humble Mr Brooker played down his achievement but said he was proud to work at a great school with a lot of eager students. “Work is work but I can honestly say I still love going to work every day,” he said. “It’s great seeing these kids go on to bigger things.”

Mr Brooker pointed towards Weipa local Jai Christie, who was once a teenager in his class. “He now has his own company in Weipa and is teaching his own young apprentices. That’s something you appreciate,” he said. “There have been a lot of kids who have come through my class and gone on to be superintendents on the mine or been successful in other areas. “That’s what it’s all about.” Western Cape College associate principal Dan Tonon congratulated Mr Brooker and the school’s other teachers who were nominated for awards.

Michael Brooker was all smiles.

OLD SCHOOL ELEGANCE REBORN It was a celebration of history, heritage, colour, dance and a good old-fashioned afternoon tea as the Cooktown community came together to celebrate the reopening of the much-loved, Cooktown Shire Hall on Saturday 21 May.

“The passion and support from the community for this project has been inspiring,” said Cook Shire Mayor Peter Scott. “The Hall has brought back some of the old elegance to Cooktown. It really is wonderful to be able to provide this fantastic venue to the community again.” See more event photos at www.cook.qld.gov.au

Message from the CEO

THE EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP TEAM

LINDA CARDEW Chief Executive Officer

With the first six months of 2022 almost over this edition of Council in Focus reflects on the numerous projects and programs recently delivered across our vast Shire as all councils and the country continue to work around COVID uncertainty, delays in receipt of materials, a challenging shortage of trades and a changing political environment. Queensland councils are now over half way through their 2020-2024 term and elected members across those 77 Councils will be thoughtfully considering their achievements to date and their goals going forward. It is an ongoing pleasure in Cook that the democratically convened marriage between Councillors and the administration is strong and productive. As I write this the day after the re-opening of the Shire Hall, my thoughts are with the community – particularly the elders who have exquisite memories of the good times in that beautiful building over past decades, and of the future generations who will now be able to feel the spirit of that place through learning, dancing, music, gathering and laughing. The enjoyment last night was undeniable and my sincere appreciation goes to Council staff for their skill and commitment to making the restoration a reality, to the heritage consultants and builders, and to the state and federal governments for their generous funding. Council continues to deliver against many targets – end of year budget preparation, the delivery of numerous capital projects, audits, infrastructure and facilities management, including water, sewerage, waste and airports. Stand out projects with Cape-wide participation include the Gateway to the Cape at Lakeland celebrating Lakeland’s role as the entry to one of Australia’s most iconic destinations with sculptural artwork from every Cape York community. It is with pride that Cook continues as an active partner in the Torres and Cape Council Alliance, adding strength to the collective voice of all Cape Councils. Council’s commitment to Indigenous Reconciliation has seen the development of our own Reconciliation Action Plan, a draft of which is due to be released for community consultation in coming weeks. Our many planning initiatives have also seen significant progress in many areas, working with State agencies to plan for infrastructure and strategic development in Lakeland, a Council subdivision and land release in Cooktown, and further north, in partnership with landowners, for the first time, the negotiation of major gravel leases – essential for the reconstruction of roads throughout the Cape. We manage the extensive biodiversity, health and local laws demands across the Cape’s 100,000 sq kms with just a few staff. With very few ratepayers Cook functions substantially with grant funding – much of which, the result of competitive processes and the skills of staff in preparing applications. It has been hugely rewarding seeing Cook go from strength to strength as it pursues and delivers on innovation, economic development and tourism, media and communications, major community events, community services and disaster management. The roles of the quiet achievers, customer service, the libraries, the magnificent Nature’s Powerhouse,the parks and gardens team, mechanics and stores, the tireless HR team, those who keep the services to the community going regardless of the challenges, the team at the depot and the many involved in governance, safety, compliance, financial management and reporting and our miracle workers - the executive assistants. It’s been truly wonderful. Thank you.

Expenditure Budget

The end of March 2022 is the 75% or three quarters of the financial year and by way of comparison, Council’s revenue stood at 89% of budget, and expenditure stood at 85% of budget. This indicates that Council is progressing well against budget and at this stage of the financial year it is anticipated that the forecast operating result for 30 June 2021 will be achieved. As is standard practice, financial reports detailing progress against budget are provided to Council at its Ordinary Meeting each month. The information contained in these reports are discussed in open session and community members can access this information on Council’s website. Council meetings are also live streamed to provide greater access for interested parties who cannot attend in person. Work on the 2022-23 annual budget is progressing well and it is anticipated that Council will release details of this budget, for community feedback in late May. Council’s budget meeting has been scheduled for 28 June 2022.

COUNCIL INVESTS INTO THE FUTURE OF LAKELAND

Cook Shire Council has acquired an 11-hectare freehold lot adjacent to the township of Lakeland in preparation for the potential exponential growth of the agricultural hub. Located at Lot 210 Peninsula Developmental Road, Lakeland, the 13,200m2 (approximately 11.23 hectares/27.97 acres) parcel was purchased for $610,000 and adjoins Council’s freehold land located within Lakeland – known as ‘Perfume Gully’ – which currently provides for natural drainage of the township. “There are some fantastic large-scale projects being discussed that will offer significant growth and development of Lakeland,” said Cook Shire Mayor, Peter Scott. “The challenge is that the current needs of the town have already outgrown the land that’s available. “The purchase of this land is a strategic investment into the future of Lakeland and the Shire as it allows for expansion and potential construction of critical local government infrastructure and the potential availability of land for essential services, government agencies, residential and commercial purposes.” Full master planning, including extensive community consultation, will be undertaken before a decision will be made on the future use of the land. While the future use of the land is being decided, the land will be maintained ‘as is’.

GETTING MORE DONE WITH GRANTS

Grant funding enables Council to deliver capital and operational programs with around 80% of Council’s operating expenses funded by State and Commonwealth grants. The table below provides a snapshot of grant activity including new applications, successful application and the finalisation of the Botanic Gardens Upgrades legacy project. Council is pleased to have received funding for several important projects including large capital upgrades such as the Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grant – Cooktown Bush and Fire Resiliency Infrastructure Upgrade to install solar power and generators at key Council infrastructure. Funding also enables Council to support smaller community based initiatives such as Move IT NQ sports funding to deliver programs encouraging participation and an Indigenous Language Grant enabling a digital Welcome to Country video to be produced.

GATEWAY TO CAPE YORK

Lakeland’s Gateway to Cape York and sculpture park was officially opened on Friday 8 April by Cook Shire Mayor, Peter Scott at a ceremony that was attended by more than 60 stakeholders, Cook Shire Councillors, community members, artists and representatives from neighbouring Aboriginal Shire Councils and local government agencies. Featuring an iconic “gateway,” a purpose-built traveller information centre, a rest stop area and an interactive sculpture park that showcases communities from Cape York, the $1.2 million project at Lakeland on Mulligan Highway welcomes visitors to Cape York Peninsula and was delivered with $998,000 from the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program. Cook Shire Council contributed $290,000 and managed delivery of the project.

ROARING SUCCESS

AUSTRALIA DAY AWARDS

Following more than six months of ongoing redesign, recertification and unfortunate supply chain delays, works to complete the upgrade Cooktown’s much-loved Lions Park Playgrounds are now complete. To celebrate, Council welcomed the Endeavour Lions Club to host their Lions Biggest BBQ charity event at the Park on Saturday 9 April 2022, where community members came together to help raise more than $626 towards Childhood Cancer Research and kids of all ages enjoyed the new, fantastic, all-weather playground. “We are incredibly proud of the work that’s gone into making the Lion’s Park a facility that the whole community has contributed to and will be able to enjoy for years to come,” said Mayor Peter Scott. The Lion’s Park Playground Upgrade project is an initiative of the Queensland Government and Cook Shire Council.

It was a pared back, invitation only, Covid-safe Australia Day event at Cooktown PCYC to celebrate the nominees and winners of the Australia Day Awards, and welcome six new Australian citizens to the Shire.

EGG-SELLENT FAMILY FUN AT AYTON The Big Bunny, lots of family fun and plenty of chocolates were enjoyed at the Ayton Family Fun Day held at the Ayton Library Market Place on Saturday 26 March 2022. Attendees enjoyed face painting, kids’ crafts, live music from Nelson and Linda, entertainment from Rachel Bradley, a magic show, an Easter egg hunt, and of course, a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

Lou Norgard received the Citizen of the Year Award for her significant contribution to Cooktown and surrounding communities as a health and wellbeing advocate and volunteer, while internationally acclaimed Indigenous Artist, Naomi Hobson received the Arts and Culture Award. Other winners included: Ella Hartwig (Young Citizen of the Year); Bob Norris (Volunteer of the Year); and the Cooktown Underwater Hockey Club (Sports Award).

PAVING THE WAY FOR THE GROWTH OF COOKTOWN In response to Cooktown’s growing population and consequent housing shortage, Cook Shire Council undertook works to extend the roads and provide services to the area known as “The Backtracks” between Boundary, Garden and Power Streets in Cooktown. Works involved upgrading the roads to seal and providing water, sewerage, power and telecommunications capabilities – all vital infrastructure that will help accommodate Cooktown’s growing urban footprint. “Council has been proactively planning for the growth of Cooktown for some time. Over the last decade there’s been significant improvements to the amenity of the town with new schools, more services, better facilities and amenities, and a growing number of new employment opportunities, all of which has attracted

an influx of people and families who now call Cooktown home,” said Cook Shire Mayor, Peter Scott. “Add the current trend towards regionalisation, and the reality is we’re running out of suitable residential offerings to meet the needs of our growing community,” said Mr Scott. “This project lays the infrastructure for Council to be able to develop freehold land to create residential housing solutions that better utilise the first-rate facilities and services we’ve created. “As one of the main service centers in the Cape, getting this infrastructure in now will help facilitate continued growth, provide investment opportunities, attract new businesses, families, residents and rate payers to Cooktown, and have a positive economic impact for the whole of the Shire.”

NEW HOME FOR ANT PLANTS

As part of these works, Council engaged the services of a professional consultant to conduct a flora and fauna survey of the project area. The subsequent report identified the presence of Ant Plants (Myrmecodia beccarii) which are listed as vulnerable under Nature Conservation Act and Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act. Council teams then prepared a plan to preserve and protect these important species. This plan included translocation of almost 600 plants from the project site to the Cooktown Botanic Gardens, where they will be cared for and closely monitored to help give them the best chance of survival.


GAMBA GRASS TASKFORCE

Cook Shire Council and Cape York NRM recently hosted a taskforce to assist with management of gamba grass in the Annan-Endeavour Catchment. Participants included teams from Douglas, Mareeba, Tablelands, Cairns and Hinchinbrook councils, QPWS, South Cape York Catchments and Biosecurity Queensland. Between 5 to 7 May 2022 eight teams surveyed and treated gamba grass on 37 properties across the region. Outcomes included a substantially reduced fire risk on participating properties and greatly enhanced knowledge of the current distribution of this species and its spread through the landscape. It is hoped that this initiative will be repeated next year and result in increasing collaboration with landholders in managing a priority invasive species of regional significance.

APPRENTICESHIPS WORK It was congratulations and farewell to Mikel Whipper, Don Woods and Taylor Russell who all completed (respectively) their plumbing, diesel fitter and carpentry apprenticeships with Council in February 2022. Armed with their new qualifications, all three gents look forward to developing their careers in their chosen trades. Following on from their departure, Council was then pleased to welcome two new apprentices to our teams – Cooktown locals Matthew Martich (Apprentice Plumber, Water and Wastewater), Connor Morgan (Apprentice Diesel Fitter) – in March. These apprenticeship opportunities are proudly funded by the Queensland Government through its First Start program under the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.

SMOOTH LANDING Works to upgrade and reseal the runway, taxiway and apron areas of the Coen Airport are now complete. The works were part of a critical transport safety infrastructure project to help to enhance safe aircraft operations and facilitate the continuation of commercial and passenger services, food supplies, health services, and mail delivery – especially during the wet season – to communities throughout Cape York.

Cook Shire Council, with funding from the Australian and Queensland Governments Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements 2018, has completed the installation of digital notice boards at central locations in Cooktown, Coen and Laura. “In times of emergency, ensuring our community has access to timely, local and accurate information is critical,” Cook Shire Mayor Peter Scott said. “These digital boards will provide an additional channel for Council, government agencies and relevant organisations to communicate important information and emergency notifications to residents and visitors. Council’s Disaster Management Officer, Narelle Dukes added that the new notice boards, along with the recent upgrade of Council’s Disaster Dashboard are one of several funded projects that demonstrate Council’s commitment towards building resilience across the Shire’s regional and remote communities. “The Council website and newly upgraded Disaster Dashboard remain the most important channels of emergency information, but these notice boards add another readily accessible source of truth that our community can rely on when they need it most.”

Cook Shire Local Area

BIOSECURITY Plan 2022-2026

The Cook Shire Local Area Biosecurity Plan 2022-2026 was approved and adopted by Council on 26 April 2022. Following a consultation process and prioritisation workshop fourteen priority invasive plants and six priority invasive animals were nominated for inclusion. The new plan has undergone a thorough redraft that is intended to make the document more relevant and easy to use. It is intended to fulfil several purposes including: • Identifying the invasive species of primary concern (priority invasive species) to our local government area • Development strategies to reduce the impact of priority invasive species • Describing performance indicators designed to assess the effectiveness of these actions • Providing landholders with a reference document outlining how they can contribute to management of priority invasive species It is intended that the Cook Shire Local Area Biosecurity Plan 2022-2026 be reviewed annually to ensure that it’s content remains relevant. This review process is overseen by the Invasive Plants and Animals Advisory Committee (IPAAC).

If you would like to join IPAAC and contribute to this process, please contact Council’s Biosecurity Services team on 4082 0500.

HEALTHY DOGS, HEALTHY COMMUNITIES

As part of the Healthy Dogs, Healthy Communities program, Council’s Animal Management team regularly visit Laura and Coen offering house-to-house visits and complementary flea, tick and worm treatments for eligable pets! Thanks to the generous donation of parasite treatments from AMMRIC (Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities) and Elanco Pet Health, more than 130 animals received flea, tick and worm treatments when the Healthy Dogs program’s vet, Justin from Central Vets in Mareeba (pictured left) joined the team in October last year.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Cairns, my family moved from Hopevale when I was very young. Growing up I would spend almost every school holiday break with my cousins either here in Cooktown, Hopevale or Cape Flattery. As an adult, I moved to Brisbane for university, and then spent four years in Canberra before coming back to Queensland in 2015.

This initiative is proudly supported by the Queensland Government, Mental Health and Wellbeing Community Package under Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy.

Your career so far? I started working when I was in high school, as a school-based trainee with the Queensland Government. I worked for various state government departments through their shared services corporations until I decided to go to university when I was 20 years old. My first few university holidays, I came back to Hopevale, and spent a few weeks working for Hopevale Aboriginal Shire Council, helping in the stores which was my first introduction to local government. In my final years of university, I started a cadetship in the Australian Public Service, which then took me to Canberra to work for the Australian National Audit Office. When I returned to Cairns in 2015 I was working on the audits of local government clients in Cairns, the Cape and out west. I moved in to local government when I took on the Finance Manager role with Yarrabah Aboriginal Shire Council. I also worked as Finance Manager for Aurukun Shire Council before starting here with Cook.

WORK HEALTH & SAFETY

Work Health and Safety (WHS) involves the management of risks to the health and safety of everyone in your workplace. This includes the health and safety of anyone who does work for the Council as well as our customers, visitors and suppliers. When WHS is implemented effectively, Council saves the funds that might otherwise be spent managing and recovering from accidents, paying compensation, and dealing with rehabilitation expenses. One of the key performance indicators of WHS is Lost Time Injuries (LTIs) – LTIs are occurrences that have resulted in either a fatality, permanent disability or time lost from work of one day/shift or more. Demonstrating our commitment to WHS, the graph below* shows that Council’s 2022 LTI Incident Rate is less than half of the Group Average and approximately one third of the Scheme rate of 1.81.

I’m enjoying being closer to family, and working for the people of the Cape. We really like the laidback lifestyle here in Cooktown particularly, but I’m also really looking forward to making time to see the rest of Cook Shire.

Annual maintenance has been carried out on the splash park including cleaning out the water tank and checking the filter media. The diaphragms on each of the water features regularly need replacing. They become pitted and damaged due to wear and this prevents the water features from being able to be switched off.

GET READY! BUSHFIRE SEASON Due to significant rainfall this wet, fuel loads will be higher leading to greater risk of bushfires during the dry months. Now is the time to start your bushfire mitigation programs. Check rural and house numbering is identifiable and talk to the Rural Fire Brigade in your area about any concerns you may have. Becoming a volunteer is another way to support your Rural Fire Brigade and learn valuable lessons about bushfire prevention and protection.

RURAL NUMBERS ARE A LIFESAVER

Rural road numbering provides an easy to use address reference, similar to urban residential street addresses. Emergency services rely on clear and legible property idenfitication to enable access and egress when responding to an emergency situation.

HOW DO RURAL NUMBERS WORK? The numbering system is based on the distance in metres (divided by 10) from the start of the origin of the road to a formed driveway. It also identifies which side of the road your property is located, with odd numbers on the left and even numbers on the right.

GETTING A NEW RURAL NUMBER For new residences, please contact Cook Shire Council on 4082 0500 and you will be supplied with a post and the reflective rural numbers at no charge. The property owner is responsible for installing the post number themselves. The post should be located 2 metres outside the edge of the road shoulder and approximately 1 metre above the ground.

MAINTAINING YOUR RURAL NUMBER Once installed, maintenance of a rural number marker becomes the responsibility of the property owner. Maintenance should include removing grass and vegetation to ensure the marker is clearly visible from the road. The marker should be regularly checked to ensure the numbers are legible. If your rural number has become illegible due to sun or other damage, Council will replace the marker at the property owner’s cost.

IN AN EMERGENCY

HOW TO PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY

• • • • • • •

Clear leaves, twigs, bark and other debris from the roof and gutters. Keep loose items around your property and garden secure. Point LPG cylinder relief valves away from the house. Conduct maintenance checks on pumps, generators, water systems. Check and fix any corrosion, rotten timber and loose fittings. Seal all gaps in external roof and wall cladding. Reduce vegetation loads along your access path. • Mow your grass regularly. • Remove excess ground fuels and combustible material (long dry grass, dead leaves and branches). • Trim low-lying branches 2 metres from the ground surrounding your home.

HAVE YOU CHECKED? • • • • • •

That you have sufficient personal protective clothing and equipment. That flammable items are not stored near your home, including woodpiles, boxes, crates, hanging baskets and garden furniture. That your first aid kit is fully stocked. That your household Emergency and Bushfire Survival plans and Evacuation Kits are up to date. Make sure you have appropriate insurance for your home and vehicles. If you have a water tank, make sure it is full.

BUSHFIRES? BUT I LIVE IN TOWN

You don’t have to live in the bush to be threatened by bushfire. Houses close to forested areas or large vacant lots can be affected by burning material, embers and smoke. Residents should be familiar with the official bushfire warning levels. Bushfire Advice means monitor contitions; Watch and Act means conditions are changing, and Emergency Warning means you are in danger.

PREPARING FOR BUSHFIRE SEASON

When there’s a bushfire in your area, it’s your responsibility to take notice, seek information, make decisions and act. If your property is unprepared, it is not only a risk to you, but also to your neighbours. Prepare a Bushfire Survival Plan and Bushfire Evacuation Kit and ensure your family and pets are prepared and know the fire risks for your area.

2022 FREE DUMPING DAYS

Get your home and property disaster ready with free dumping available for sorted domestic waste at all Cook Shire waste transfer stations during the following dates: 19–26 July, and then 25 October until 7 November 2022.

Senior students lead by example.

Western Cape College’s 2022 age champions with their trophies at Friday afternoon’s presentation.

The tug-of-war brought fierce competition.

Athletics carnival goes to Evans A SPATE of COVID and flu cases in the school community had an impact on numbers at the Western Cape College athletics carnival last week, but it didn’t dampen the spirit of students and staff. Evans House claimed the overall victory at Andoom Oval, beating Duyfken, Flinders and Mapoon. Flinders took out the House Spirit Award. Age champions were celebrated on Friday afternoon after two days of track and field competition. The program was mixed up with dance competitions, tug-of-war and other novelty events. Two school records were broken. Star long-distance runner Max Lynch shaved almost four seconds off his age group’s 1500m record with a time of 5:22.40. It was a record that stood for 20 years. Demi de Tournouer also broke a long-standing high jump record in her age group. She leapt 1.36 metres, smashing the 2006 mark of 1.29 metres.

This Evans speedster was quick out of the blocks and impossible to catch.

Demi de Tournouer and Max Lynch set new records.

Duyfken recruited some visiting staff members for additional support.

Despite being well down on numbers, Mapoon performed well at Andoom Oval.

Jerry Burke and Jo Ross.

The starter prepares runners.

These Evans athletes were all smiles.

Flinders was a deserved winner of the spirit award.

The stop watches got a good workout across two days. Tuesday, May 31, 2022 – Cape York Weekly – Page 25


SPORT IN BRIEF Foy wins by a stroke MICK Foy was last week’s Wednesday Wackers winner, beating a field of 16 on the front nine at Weipa. He scored a nett 34 to beat Giembra Busmer, who pipped Jon Dall for runner-up on a countback. Jim Lucas had the nearest to pin on the 7th, while none of the 16 hit the green on the 9th. Matt Byrne picked up the Bradman’s as he strives to blow out his handicap again. No scores were received from the Dawn Busters golf crew on Sunday morning.

Billy’s winners named NEW Queensland coach Billy Slater has named the squad that will lead the Maroons to victory against NSW next week. Slater has name four debutants — Broncos duo Selwyn Cobbo and Pat Carrigan and Cowboys aces Reuben Cotter and Jeremiah Nanai. The huge bolter is Cobbo, who this time last year was playing Queensland Cup for Wynnum Manly and has clinched his Origin debut after just 19 NRL games. QLD squad: Kalyn Ponga, Xavier Coates, Dane Gagai, Valentine Holmes, Selwyn Cobbo, Cameron Munster, Daly CherryEvans (c), Josh Papalii, Harry Grant, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui, Kurt Capewell, Felise Kaufusi, Reuben Cotter, Ben Hunt, Pat Carrigan, Jeremiah Nanai, Lindsay Collins, Jai Arrow, Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow, Tom Flegler, Murray Taulagi, Tom Dearden. NSW squad: James Tedesco (c), Nathan Cleary (vc), Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Damien Cook, Stephen Crichton, Tyson Frizell, Payne Haas, Nicho Hynes, Api Koroisau, Jarome Luai, Junior Paulo, Liam Martin, Ryan Matterson, Cameron Murray, Jacob Saifiti, Tariq Sims, Kotoni Staggs, Joseph Suaalii, Brian To’o, Daniel Tupou, Jack Wighton, Isaah Yeo.

Cricket comes to NQ THE Australian men’s cricket team will play two series of one-day internationals in north Queensland later this year. The Aussies will play three ODIs against Zimbabwe in Townsville in August before heading up the Bruce Highway for another three ODIs against New Zealand at Cairns in September.

Carpentaria Golf Club’s champions for 2022 – Luke Wheeler, Viv Chan, Dave Morgan, Vicki Molloy and Conor Napiorkowski.

Golf champions crowned at Weipa and Cooktown CAPE York’s two golf clubs have crowned their champions for 2022, as well as their May monthly medal winners. At Weipa, the Carpentaria Golf Club championships are played over four rounds across two weekends. Back-to-back Saturday and Sunday rounds are a great test for golfers, but always put a strain on availability in the shiftworking mining town. Luke Wheeler was a worthy winner, saving his best round until last to be the A-grade men’s champion. He held off Ross Craven by eight strokes. Dave Morgan claimed the men’s B-grade championship from Dale “Dasha” Holmquest, while C-grade went to Conor Napiorkowski. In the women’s events, just two were in the A-grade field, with Viv Chan pipping Helen Sabatino by two strokes.

John McArthur is congratulated by Cooktown’s captain Rick Butler.

Vicki Molloy was the B-grade women’s champ, beating Sharon Gardiner. The nett winners were just about the same, with Gardiner reversing the result in the women’s B-grade. The C-grade nett runner-up was Jeff Watson.

Sunday’s round was also the May monthly medal and the winners were Wheeler in Agrade, Jay Murray in B-grade and Jerrod Byrne in C-grade. Across the Peninsula at Cooktown, the club championships were played across three con-

secutive Saturdays, with the best two scores counting towards the result. Some golfers played all three rounds, while others were only able to play two. Sam Godfrey-Roberts was the A-grade winner, but it was the performance of John McArthur that had people talking. The much-improved golfer was only six shots off the overall champ and was a clear winner of B-grade. He also picked up the monthly medal, cleaned up the cash event and will win the Race to the Bay wet season title. Laurie Downs held off a hard charging Aaron Hobbs to claim the C-grade title. Alice Burton was the only woman in the field and claimed the championship for her division by default – but still much deserved! The seniors title went to Paul Sperring.
