Council meetings on the move

Posted: 1pm 31 Aug 2021

Moreton Bay Regional Council meetings will hit the road for the first time.

First stop on the regional tour is Samford on September 15, with residents invited to connect with councillors and senior Council staff at the Samford Community Hub.

With numbers limited due to COVID restrictions, Mayor Peter Flannery is encouraging locals to secure a spot by submitting questions online ahead of the meeting.

“Don’t miss your chance to talk face-to-face with Council on a particular project or topic at our first ever Community Council Meeting in Samford,” Mayor Peter Flannery says.

“I’m looking forward to hearing firsthand about the topics that came through as important to locals in Samford, Dayboro and surrounds in our landmark Moreton Says survey.

“Having just turned the first sod on Samford’s $4.5 million pedestrian bridge with Pine Rivers MP Nikki Boyd and Cr Darren Grimwade and recently opened the $4.45 million Samford Community Hub with Minister Peter Dutton, I know this is a well-represented community but it’s also remote and that’s why this initiative is important.”

Region-wide visits

Mayor Flannery says Community Council Meetings will eventually be held right across the Moreton Bay Region.

“It's also a great opportunity for residents to address and debate things that matter to them most, as well as showcasing the uniqueness of each community.”

Numbers will be limited due to Covid restrictions.

The Samford meeting starts at 9.30am and will be followed by scheduled community meetings from 11.30am after morning tea at 10.45am.
