Mayoral Minute with Cr Bob Kirk:

Reconciliation Action Plan

At last week’s council meeting we resolved to establish a Reconciliation Action Plan Working Party to develop this plan and put a draft to council prior to the end of 2018.

Cr Peter Walker and Cr Alfie Walker are members of the party along with a delegate of the general manager, with two representatives chosen by the Pejar Land Council and two community members to be added. Council is now calling for expressions of interest for the community member positions.

Expressions of interest should include why you would like to be involved and the competencies, qualifications and positive attributes you would bring to the working party and the project.

Nominations should be addressed to Jackson Reardon, Communications Manager, and can be posted to Locked Bag 22, Goulburn, NSW or emailed to jackson.reardon@goulburn.nsw.gov.au

Nominations will close at 5pm, Friday October 27.

Community Energy 4 Goulburn

Community Energy for Goulburn are hosting an information evening tonight at Workspace 2580 between 5-7pm. The evening will show residents how they can sign up for cheaper electricity bills and help build a community owned solar farm at the same time – they’ve invited the community to drop in any time throughout the two hours for a chat.  

The Kisoro Project

Last week I had the privilege of attending the launch of the Kisoro Project sale stall in Goulburn Plaza. The initiative involves people from Canberra and Goulburn and has changed the lives of the BaTwa people who live in the town of Kisoro in the extreme south western corner of Uganda. 

The project has a had a genuinely positive effect on these people and the committee should be proud of their achievements so far – if you would like to support the project or get involved you can contact Refresh F5 Goulburn through the website at www.refreshf5goulburn.wordpress.com

Mayoral Golf Day

The Mayoral Golf Day is fast approaching and we are still seeking sponsorship, while also now accepting entries of teams of four. In 2016 we raised over $15,000 for local charities in what was a fantastic day out at the Goulburn Golf Club.

This year’s event will be held on Friday, November 24 and features a four person Ambrose competition over 18 holes, with a shotgun start. Cost is $35 per player, which includes green fees and a BBQ lunch. If you are interested in sponsoring the day, or entering a team, please contact Tracey on 4823 4510.
