Water bill reprieve for Isaac ratepayers Isaac ratepayers have been given a twelve month reprieve by Isaac Regional Council before they have to pay for water use.

Mayor Anne Baker said Council moved to delay water consumption charges, which were to take effect from July 1, 2016 at the Council Ordinary Meeting week. “The delay will provide more time for ratepayers to prepare, and for Council to ensure a seamless transition to the new user pays system,” she said. “We know how difficult the economic environment is for our residents, ratepayers and businesses.” “While Council intended to, it has not issued any charges for consumption and will not charge for consumption until July 1, 2017.” “Council will take the time to ensure the new charging system is appropriate, efficient and reliable.” “The first water notice issued will be for the period July 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017 and will be issued during January, 2018.”

“The delay will also provide people with more time to develop their water-saving habits,” she said. Ratepayers can sign up to MiWater, a website that provides water consumption information at www.isaac.qld.gov.au/miwater. “You will be able to set email and SMS alerts and be notified of water leaks and high consumption within days of occurrence.” Ratepayers will still pay an access charge as part of their rates; this covers the cost of owning, operating, maintaining and managing the water supply facilities and network in eight communities across Isaac. For more details on the two-part water tariff, please visit www.isaac.qld.gov.au.

Council throws support behind Clermont community projects Clermont is set to host the national Campdraft finals with Isaac Regional Council contributing a $10,000 platinum sponsorship

Keen for Campdraft: Clermont Campdraft fans can look forward to the Australian Campdraft Association National Finals in 2017.

Clermont is set to host the national Campdraft finals thanks to Isaac Regional Council’s $10,000 platinum sponsorship. The sponsorship was awarded through the Isaac Community Grants Program, during the Ordinary Council Meeting last week. Mayor Anne Baker said the Australian Campdraft Association National Finals will be held April 21 to 24, 2017. “Congratulations to the Clermont Campdraft Association for winning their bid to host the event at the Clermont Showgrounds. “This is an outstanding coup for Clermont, with the finals set to attract Campdraft enthusiasts from across Australia.” Campdraft fans weren’t the only winners in this week’s Council meeting. Mayor Anne Baker said a Major Grant was awarded to help disadvantaged youth in the Clermont district. “A grant of $2,500 will help the Clermont and District Education Group provide student bursaries,” she said. “The financial assistance will allow youth to pursue post-school education and employment opportunities. “Council also voted unanimously to support the Clermont Rangers Program.

“The Showgrounds facility hire fee will be waived to host the exciting course. “It will deliver a qualification in conservation and land management for indigenous youth. “Council is pleased to support the program proposed by Glencore, TAFE Queensland North and the Clermont Aboriginal Community Development Fund (ACDF).” The Clermont Campdraft Association and Clermont and District Education Group were successful applicants in Round Two of Isaac’s Community Grants Program. Round three of Major Community Grants is now open, closing January 15, 2017. Not for profit community groups and organisation are encouraged to apply for funding to support local projects, events and activities.

Time has really flown. Christmas just round the corner and no doubt Easter will be upon us. I have attended a lot of meetings in a short period of time. Meetings are a good thing, as long as they are not just meetings for the sake of holding a meeting. Pleased to say all the ones I attend are beneficial. Spent the day at Monash Lodge on Melbourne Cup day. I have to say it was the best fun I have had for a long time. Everyone of all ages had a great time as well. Race day at Clermont was another great event I attended recently. I had the pleasure of judging Fashions on the Field. Thanks to everyone who supported day and to the organisers for hosting another fantastic event.

Well we are definitely heading into Christmas and not a moment too soon I might add as there is a terrible shortage of good socks and Hawaiian shirts everywhere. Lucidly shops cannot sell these items at any other time of the year, so it’s a demand and supply strategy practiced by one Mr S Claus. Enough of the good tidings and onto real issues. Crime, not really happening at the moment in Clermont. Little things being reported but either everyone has become vigilant in the protection of their holdings or respect for each other has grown to new heights, a welcome sign. On the traffic front a couple of worrying trends. First issue - if you lose your license through court disqualification and you serve say your 6 months penance, then at the end of that time you must get a new license by visiting the station or a QT outlet and apply for a new license. Your old one is no good as it was cancelled. If you get caught driving you get charged with unlicensed driving or a ticket for a few hundred dollars. Don’t think like a bright young spark I recently pulled up and blame it on everyone else including the judge. I said to him well go and tell the judge that he stuffed up and see where you end up!

The second issue is personalized plates. You must apply to QT to have the plates placed on a vehicle. This means get the plates, fill out the form at the courthouse and submit it concerning the car you want to place the plates onto. Once this is done you will receive a receipt to carry around with you until you receive notification that the records have been modified. Again there is a few hundred reasons that you need to do this. As we come into the holiday period and those big car trips are approaching remember to have entertainment available. Kids today are not like us of old. They don’t want to listen to the ABC radio for hundreds of kilometres on end. However a word of caution about letting the kids arrange the entertainment, don’t! That is unless you want to play ‘Guess that Justin Beiber song’ for miles on end. Strike a happy medium and try to avoid the obscure I spy? Finally Christmas parties. They’re great but usually the worst place to drink and have your boss’s face right there. Be merry, try not to lose your job and above all respect each other and further for Mary’s sake stay away from the photocopier! Until next time The Sarge Isaac... helping to energise the world

THE

GOLDEN RULES OF

Kerbside Recycling

1 4

Stay Loose Recycling goes into the bin loose – never in a plastic bag, and keep other soft plastic out too* #.

2 5

Keep It Clean-ish Recycling does not need to be spotless – just scrape of solid food and give it a quick rinse.

These rules apply to almost everyone but of course some people have to bend ‘em!

* A handful of councils have special kerbside systems for these items. #

Soft plastics and bags can be dropped off at many supermarkets.

So you think you can recycle, right?

Follow these Six Golden Rules to make sure you’re doing the right thing.

Easy Does It Paper, cardboard, glass jars and bottles, metal cans and aerosols, cartons and rigid plastics are easy to recycle and accepted in almost all kerbside collections.

Drop ‘Em Off Kerbside systems cannot separate items like mobiles, computers, batteries and printer cartridges – find local drop off services*.

To find out what’s in and what’s out in your area visit

3

Into the Garbage Crockery, window and drinkware glass, polystyrene, plastic bags, nappies and food are the big baddies in the recycling – put them in the garbage*.

6 BONU

If in doubt Leave it out! Putting the wrong thing in the wrong bin can ruin your good recycling efforts.

CLASS DESCRIPTION Gut and Butt Blast Is a target class that focuses on strengthening and toning the nine core divisions of the abdominal plane. While simultaneously blasting the three muscles of the buttocks, hamstrings and quadriceps. This will increase fat metabolism at rest and help slim and tone those problematic areas. Although not targeted, general whole body conditioning applies and while challenging, is more than suitable for any fitness level.
