The Bundaberg Regional Council is divided into ten geographic divisions, with each councilor being assigned a specific portfolio or portfolios to ensure a well-balanced and efficient allocation of duties throughout the region. The portfolios are meticulously designed for each councillor with unique and specific roles to fulfil in their respective regions. By having such portfolios in place, the council is not only able to better serve the local communities but also maintain an effective coordination among the councillors. With such measures in place, the council is committed to delivering its services with accountability, transparency, and professionalism.
Each Councillor has been assigned a Portfolio which extends beyond his/her Divisional responsibilities and spreads across the entire region.
A LDMG is established under s29 of the Disaster Management Act 2003 which has been legislated to support Local Government in the delivery of disaster management services and responsibilities in Preventing, Preparing for, Responding to, and Recovering from, Disaster events.
As the Deputy Chair of the LDMG, my role is to support the Mayor in his role as the Chair in ensuring that all legislative requirements are addressed before, during and after any disaster event. The Mayor also has the authority to deploy Council resources to assist Emergency Services in protecting life and property.
LDMG’s include representatives of all Emergency Services, Utility Providers, Community Aid Associations, Education Department and basically any group whose expertise can be drawn on from across the community during or following a disaster.
The council maintains a dedicated disaster management reference page which is regularly updated and provides a one-stop-shop for local residence. The reference page can be accessed here.
As we hopefully move forward from the devastating effects of the pandemic we need to prepare for the multiple challenges that face both the residential and commercial communities.
Part of this process includes the Human & Social Recovery Committee and the Economic Recovery Committee. Each of these are represented by multiple agencies who provide input and feedback relevant to their specific role.
Appropriately, all public statements and media releases are either issued or approved by Queensland Health who are the lead agency during the administration and recovery processes.
All matters associated with the operation of the Bundaberg Airport including passenger facilities, concessions, commercial precinct, hanger leases, etc.
