Redland City Council employee one of top ten young leaders


Redland City Council’s Luke Kinman has been named one of the State’s top 10 young leaders in the prestigious IPAA Queensland Top 10 Young Leaders Awards last night.

The awards recognise Queensland’s exceptional young leaders across all levels of the public sector.

Luke, 26,  is the Service Manager for Communication, Engagement and Tourism at Council managing the team that delivers community events such as Christmas By Starlight and the recent Commonwealth Games relay as well as tourism initiatives across the city.

Apart from his demanding day job, Luke is also President of RedFest (Redland Spring Festival), a position he undertakes voluntarily and that sees him deliver one of South East Queensland’s largest festivals.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said Luke was a remarkable young leader and well deserving of the award through the highly regarded Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA).

“It’s great to see young leaders recognised for their exceptional contribution to the public sector early in their career, as it opens up their careers to new opportunities,” Cr Williams said.

“Luke was nominated by one of his team members and the panel of senior leaders from government, industry, community and university sectors have assessed the applications against the Award’s criteria.

“He shows maturity and resilience beyond his years, generates enthusiastic commitment from his team, and passionately serves his community.

“Luke’s leadership coupled with his infectious passion and vision to turn an idea into reality inspires his team to go above and beyond and delivers exciting and creative festivals, events and programs for the Redlands community, Cr Williams said.

Luke moved straight from college to work at the Redland Performing Arts Centre in 2010 as a trainee in the Technical Production and Events team. After seven years working in a range of supervisory and management roles within the Council, he was successful in being appointed as a Service Manager within the Communication, Engagement and Tourism team.

Luke said to win one of the top awards was mind-blowing.

“It sounds like a cliché, but it’s true – simply being nominated is an honour,” Luke said.

“I am eternally grateful for the opportunities the Redland City Council has offered me throughout my career so far.

“And I certainly wish to thank the amazing team who work with me every day.”

Apomogy: a beautiful project helping people say ‘sorry’


We’ve all had fights with friends and loved ones. We’ve done or said something we’re not proud of. We’ve all hurt others and been hurt. And sometimes we don’t know quite how to say sorry.

On display at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba from Saturday 14 July and created by Rachel Burke, Apomogy is an ongoing community art project about saying you’re sorry with a pom pom.

Apomogy began in 2015 when Rachel looked for a unique way to say sorry after having a fight with a close friend. After attaching a few apologetic confessions to pom poms Rachel decided to share them on social media. Soon after, others began sharing their own apologies with her, and with their permission Burke turned their apologies into a collection of apomogies. Since then, Rachel has received over 1000 heartfelt apomogies from around the globe; a number that continues to grow daily.

The exhibition evokes a range of emotions; some apomogies tell hilarious stories of harmless acts, others tell heartfelt stories of remorse and regret. Some apomogies are shamefully relatable; others are gut-wrenchingly shocking. Regardless of the reason to apologise, Apomogy has unexpectedly brought people together from around the globe in an act of expression, reflection and craft making.

Bring the kids along to the opening event for an all ages workshop on apomogy making, lead by exhibition creator Rachel Burke.

Debut feature film by leading Australian artist David Griggs premiers at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland


A major survey exhibition of painting, photography and film by leading Australian artist David Griggs will open at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland on Friday 20 July.

The exhibition – Between Nature and Sin – showcases a decade of past works and incorporates the premiere of the artists’ first feature film, Cowboy Country.

David Griggs explores the darker undercurrents of human existence. His work, predominantly portraiture, focuses on the human condition; drawing on political imagery, underground media, local histories and personal experience. Famous for his bold approach, Griggs exposes the raw underbelly of society.

His work is often collaborative, engaging directly with communities while remaining sensitive to the ethical and moral obligations this demands. For the last 10 years Griggs has resided in the Philippines and created a significant body of work that reveals the social hierarchies and underground culture of his adopted home.

Exhibition Curator Megan Monte said that Manila had challenged, broken and rebuilt Griggs in countless ways, as had his collaborations.

“This is encapsulated in the series of work presented in Between Nature and Sin, Griggs’ most ambitious and challenging project to date,’ Ms Monte said.

David Griggs’ examination of the issues that affect the Philippines continues in his first major feature film Cowboy Country.

Produced collaboratively with the community and set in a fishing village on a remote Philippines island, Cowboy Country follows the story of a kidnapped American Filipino teenager being held captive for ransom. The film features leading Filipino actors Soliman Cruz, the late Dante Perez and Melanie Tejano.

Join us, and hear from artist David Griggs, at the exhibition opening event.

When: Friday 20 July from 6.30pm

Nominate an inspiring senior today


Redland City Mayor Karen Williams is calling on Redlanders to get behind Blue Care’s Inspiring Seniors community initiative by nominating an inspiring senior for their 2018 honour roll.

Councillor Williams said that many of our seniors contributed significantly to the Redlands community on a regular basis – compassionately giving their time, skills and ideas for the benefit of others.

“Quite simply, they are an indispensable resource, often keeping not-for-profit organisations that provide essential community services afloat.

“Redland City Council is proud supporter of this Blue Care initiative, with each of our divisional Councillors nominating an inspiring senior deserving of recognition,” Cr Williams said.

“But there are many unsung heroes in our midst, so I’m appealing to my fellow Redland residents to unearth and nominate their own inspiring seniors. They may be working with charities, schools or sporting clubs – or simply offering support and friendship to others in their time of need.”

Blue Care’s Breanne Tukavkin said that the event, now in its tenth year, provided an opportunity to acknowledge someone who might otherwise go unnoticed.

“If you are inspired by someone – a neighbour, a relative or someone in your local club – please nominate them, including a 200 word submission about their contribution, why it is inspiring and how it has positively impacted the Redland Community.

“Nominations close Monday 23 July, after which the recognised seniors will be special guests at a presentation morning tea with Redland City Councillors during Seniors Week,” Ms Tukavkin said.

For more information or to obtain a nomination form email B.Tukavkin@bluecare.org.au, phone 0411 381 159 or search the “What’s On” calendar on www.redland.qld.gov.au.

Turn your ideas into reality with a Council community grant


From staging cultural events to regenerating wildlife areas, you can make your community-focused project happen with a community grant from Redland City Council.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the first round of community grants opens next month Monday 16 July, closing Friday 17 August, with assistance available under the categories of Organisation Support, Project Support, Conservation Support and Capital Infrastructure.

“Every year, Council provides more than $500,000 in grants and sponsorship to help local organisations, community groups and individuals make a difference in the community,” Cr Williams said.

“Our grants and sponsorship program support a diverse range of events and projects so I urge anyone with an initiative that can deliver clear benefits to the broader community to apply.”

“Last year, Council grants contributed to a variety of projects, from publishing Quandamooka stories and history to upskilling local artists through the Coochie Art Group and supporting the personal and social development of teenage girls through the Redlands Centre for Women”.

“Council’s Sponsorship Program also helped to bring us a range of fantastic community events, from RedFest to Redlands Rockabilly Revival and Island Vibe.”

“This year we would like to especially encourage applicants under the category of Conservation Support so if you have an on-the-ground environmental project you would like to see up and running make sure you apply, she said”

Mayor Williams also encouraged applicants with projects that could help support Council’s recently endorsed City brand.

“The new place brand for the City, Redlands Coast – Naturally Wonderful, sees us embark on a new journey to deliver sustainable economic development of the city, through tourism and events and industry and connectivity, Cr Williams said.”

“We encourage applicants who can embrace the opportunities that our grants provide to help support our new identity Redlands Coast and help build a platform upon which we can promote all the city has to offer”.

“There is strong competition for funding so please visit our website while submissions are open to see if we can help you help the community,” she said.

Applications for this round of community grants will be accepted from Monday 16 July until Friday 17 August 2018 in the following categories:

  • Organisation Support Grant – for projects associated with becoming more sustainable and improving capacity to deliver services.
  • Project Support Grant – for projects that deliver short-to-medium term positive outcomes for the community.
  • Conservation Grants – for conservation projects that benefit the environment and wildlife.

Applications for the next round of Sponsorship will be accepted from Monday 6 August until Friday 7 September 2018 and will support community-based activities and events that provide measurable benefits to Council.

Southern Moreton Bay Islands’ levy to end


The Southern Moreton Bay Island Translink levy will end in December 2018 as part of a Redland City Council budget that also provides for the initial stages of Redland Bay’s Weinam Creek parking and development project.

The 2018-19 budget sees substantial allocations for island communities, including the continuation of the Green Seal road program.

Mayor Karen Williams said the budget underscored the city’s commitment to bay island communities and addressed island residents’ priorities.

“As promised, the Translink levy will end on 31 December 2018, fulfilling the commitment made by Council when we promised to bring Translink services to the Southern Moreton Bay Islands in 2013,’’ Cr Williams said.

“This levy was designed to establish the Translink service for the bay islands and it has done its job with about 1400 trips a day on the service.

“Council has kept its word and now it is over to Translink to maintain all the benefits residents have enjoyed once the agreement expires. I will be writing to the Minister to make it clear the Redlands community expects them to honour the commitment they made in 2013 by keeping this service in place so our SMBI residents are connected to the rest of South East Queensland.”

The budget includes $3.1 million for Redland Bay’s Weinam Creek transport and parking project.

“Council is planning to borrow funds to make the Weinam Creek project happen as it is a significant intergenerational project for our city and will open our foreshores and Moreton Bay to tourism and recreation,’’ Cr Williams said.

“At the same time we are banging on the State Government’s door and urging it to fulfill its responsibility for funding the marine infrastructure that the islands need.

“This would then allow us to invest in intergenerational projects such as Weinam Creek. The alternative to the State Government funding marine public transport is that the city – and that means ratepayers – will have to pay more.

“Managing the 335km of coastline which the Redlands Coast is known for, is expensive and the type of investment required is beyond the means of a modest council such as Redlands. We cannot continue to be the only council of our size that pays for such marine transport projects which are the responsibility of the state.”

The budget also commits to continuing the successful Green Seal road program on the islands.

“We have given priority to residents’ wishes for island roads to be sealed faster,’’ Cr Williams said.

The islands’ Rural Fire Brigade Special Charge remains at $20 per annum to buy and maintain equipment and provide a fire service to island properties.

“The budget also includes $240,000 for Southern Moreton Bay Islands fire management compliance to minimise the risk to residents and property from the impacts of bushfire,” Cr Williams said.

The charge for the islands’ standard 240l waste and recycling bins will increase $30.90 a year, the same as for the mainland.

New rating categories for Raby Bay canal properties


Redland City Council has voted to move away from special levies for canal properties at Raby Bay, introducing new rating categories in its 2018-19 budget to fund revetment wall repairs from their general rates.

It follows city-wide consultation, including the involvement of an independent Citizens’ Advisory Panel, on how best to manage and fund the maintenance activities of the city’s canals and lake and revetment walls.

“Differential rates have been introduced for Raby Bay canal properties in 2018-19 to cover revetment walls,’’ Cr Williams said. “Currently there is no programmed expenditure for revetment wall works in Aquatic Paradise or Sovereign Waters, where traditionally there is very limited or no revetment wall works required.”

“Council will pay for all dredging and maintenance at Raby Bay, Aquatic Paradise and Sovereign Waters estates and 10 percent of the cost of work on revetment walls at Raby Bay, reflecting slightly more than the proportion of revetment wall owned by Council. These sections of wall border the city’s public parks and facilities.

“Essentially, Raby Bay canal property owners will continue to pay for their proportion of revetment walls. They will pay via new differential general rating categories, rather than a special charge.

“And with Council collecting the funds and managing the repairs there will be a visible reserve that is then used to fix revetment walls; providing residents with assurances that  revetment walls will be fixed should problems arise, which is what canal property owners said they wanted. They did not want to be left to rely on individual property owners to fix the revetment walls or for property owners to be left with large individual bills for a revetment wall failure on their property.”

Cr Williams said the appropriate level of funding contributed by the city and those who live on the canals and lake had been discussed by Council and canal and lake property owners for many years.

“We are confident this arrangement will provide security to canal property owners and the broader city,” Cr Williams said.

“I encourage the city’s residents to get out and enjoy our canals and lakes, whether it is a spot of fishing or kayaking. The waterways are there for everyone.”

The new differential rating system follows extensive community consultation, including a 40-person Citizens’ Advisory Panel – the first of its kind in the Redlands – on the best way to fund and manage canal and lake maintenance and revetment walls.

Redland City 2018 budget overview


Redland City Council has adopted an “achievable and affordable” budget for 2018-19.

The budget delivers an average rates and charges rise of 3.99 percent for a typical category 1a, owner-occupied household, excluding State Government charges, while maintaining Council’s low-debt status. It also delivers a $66.9 million capital works program that focuses on the renewal of vital community infrastructure such as roads and parks.

Mayor Karen Williams said Councillors had to strike a balance between keeping residential and commercial rates rises to a minimum and meeting the expectations of residents against a backdrop of continued hefty increases in the State Government’s bulk water charges and cost of waste management.

“For the fourth consecutive year, we have maintained our water retail charges at the same rate as 2015 to offset the continued substantial rises in the state bulk water price,” Cr Williams said.

“The state’s water rise accounts for 72 cents a week or nearly $37.40 a year based on average 200kL consumption.

“This is something over which Council has no control, along with the higher cost of managing the city’s waste and recycling,” Cr Williams said.

Cr Williams said in framing this budget, Councillors worked to ensure it was both achievable and affordable, while maintaining the city’s enviable financial status and delivering the major projects that will be required in the years ahead.

“Under this $289 million budget, a typical Redland household – that’s a category 1a residential owner-occupied property with a property land value of $241,305 – will see a modest increase of 3.99 percent for their Redland City Council rates and utilities, excluding the State Government bulk water and emergency management charges.

Cr Williams said part of the average rates increase was linked to Council’s environmental and community safety obligations.

“The city’s environmental levy will rise by $6.48 a year to fund the acquisition of strategic land such as the Commonwealth land at Birkdale, for which we are negotiating with the Federal Government,’’ Cr Williams said.

“We also have allocated over $1.1 million to our Koala Conservation program to fund on-the-ground research and develop science-based actions to protect koalas and their habitat.

“Changes to the Australian recycling landscape have also led to an increase in waste charges to ensure the Redlands continues to be proactive in promoting best-practice recycling.

Cr Williams said the 2018-19 budget allowed for a small projected operating deficit of about $2.35 million – a significant improvement on last year.

“This budget was also the first to benefit from the application of new prioritisation principles to the capital works program,” Cr Williams said.

“We have implemented a new, more rigorous way of prioritising major projects, which ensures our capital works program is achievable and delivers residents the best value for money.

“This year we are focusing on renewing existing community infrastructure to ensure it remains in good shape and save money in the long term.

“This really is a steady budget which locks in the work which has been done in the past few years and prepares us well for delivering the services and infrastructure that will be needed in the years ahead.

Cr Williams said that after increases in commercial rates last year to help drive much-needed investment and growth, this year’s commercial rates rises reflected the residential increase.

“The modest rise in the commercial rates will continue to support measures to boost our economic development and help local businesses and enterprises to grow through making our city more attractive to trade and investment,’’ she said.

There also has been a change to Council’s rating categories to take in the new system for funding the city’s canal revetment walls.

“Canal and lake dredging and maintenance will be funded through general rates after recent community consultation, including a Citizens’ Advisory Panel,’’ Cr Williams said.

“Council will pay for all dredging and maintenance and 10 percent of the cost of maintaining Raby Bay revetment walls and this has had some effect on rates across the city.

“Raby Bay canal property owners will essentially continue to pay for their proportion of revetment walls through the new differential rates, with Council project managing repairs.

“This will provide assurance that any revetment wall problems will be fixed and not left to individual owners.”

Cr Williams said Council remained unwavering in its commitment to offset cost increases by becoming smarter and more efficient and was also seeking greater support through funding from the State Government.

“We are drawing a line in the sand over what we pay for and what the state pays for. We want ratepayers’ money for local projects that are the responsibility of Council,’’ Cr Williams said.

“Our policy position is that public transport is a state responsibility and they should pay for it. It is untenable that Redland City continues to be the only council of its size that funds infrastructure for ferry services.

“This decision frees up money for projects that will benefit the Southern Moreton Bay Islands, including $3.1 million towards planning for the Weinam Creek project, the largest intergenerational project to receive funding in this budget.

“We continue to lobby for our fair share of state and federal funding rather than allowing our rates to be increased by the ongoing cost shifting.

“Local Government across the country is responsible for 25 per cent of the nation’s infrastructure, but receives only three per cent of all taxes raised.”

Cr Williams said that of all the money Council raised, almost three-quarters was for the maintenance programs needed to support the community and their delivery, with the rest set aside for new infrastructure and capital programs.

“And of our total funding, less than 14 percent comes in the form of grants, subsidies and contributions from sources such as other levels of government,” she said.

The Budget at a glance:

  • A typical Redlands resident owner-occupied household (category 1a with a property value of about $241,305) will see a modest increase of 3.99 percent on Council rates and charges, excluding the State Government bulk water and emergency management charges.
  • The increased state bulk water charge equates to about 72 cents per week or nearly $37.40 a year.
  • Council’s retail water costs maintained at 2015-16 prices to help offset the State Government bulk water cost increase of 7.3 per cent from 2017-18 to 2018-19.
  • General rate increases for commercial properties on par with residential properties.
  • Capital expenditure totalling $66.9 million.
  • New borrowings for intergenerational projects of $2.5 million as compared to the forecast revenue of $319 million.
  • A projected operating deficit of about $2.35 million.
  • Pensioner rebate maintained at $335 per year for a full pensioner or $167.50 for a part-pensioner.
  • Environment levy increases $6.48 a year to help fund purchases of strategic land for the community.
  • Koala Conservation program funding of $1.1 million to deliver on-the-ground research and science-based actions to protect and improve koala habitat, reduce koala deaths and improve community education around koalas.

Redlands invests in renewal


Redland City’s 2018-19 budget invests heavily in the renewal of existing road, transport and community infrastructure such as parks.

Mayor Karen Williams said $13.8 million had been set aside in the $66.9 million capital works program to re-seal local roads as part of almost $23 million allocated to mainland and island transport and traffic projects.

“The program in this budget is aimed at ensuring existing community infrastructure is in tip-top shape, which will save the city money in the longer term.

“The commitment includes $22.9 million for road rehabilitation, including $4.45 million for the Collins Street and School of Arts Road upgrade at Redland Bay and funding for the continuation of Council’s successful Green Seal Program on the Southern Moreton Bay Islands.

“Another $847,000 will be spent on footpaths and $992,500 on bus shelter and seat renewals.”

With more than 330km of coastline, the Redlands Coast relies heavily on marine infrastructure, which will be a key part of this year’s capital program.

“However marine infrastructure is expensive, more so for a council of our size, so we have been seeking a commitment from the State Government, which has responsibility for marine projects, to fully fund and maintain future marine transport work.”

“This decision allows us to invest in local projects, including $3.1 million for Redland Bay’s Weinam Creek transport and parking project, and a further $7.9 million for the city’s marine infrastructure and foreshores.

“As a coastal city with island communities, our marine infrastructure is critical,” Cr Williams said.

“We have earmarked $699,175 for Victoria Point’s Masters Avenue barge ramp, which services Coochiemudlo Island.

“Other expenses include almost $6.5 million for work in the city’s canals.

“Following community consultation and changes to the way we fund canal and lake maintenance, dredging and revetment wall repairs, Council has set aside $2.3 million for the Raby Bay revetment wall upgrade program, $1.13 million for Raby Bay groyne renewal and $3.1 million for work at Aquatic Paradise.”

Parks and conservation are major beneficiaries.

“This budget includes funding for the Wellington Point Village Green and streetscape upgrades, as well as providing $2.1 million for the expansion of Redlands IndigiScapes Centre at Capalaba to cater for growing demand,” Cr Williams said.

More than $4.1 million will go towards renewing playgrounds, parks and sports fields across the city.

“Parks in every division will get new equipment, features or amenities. These are priorities as our parks are vital to the wellbeing of residents and help to foster the strong sense of community we enjoy in the Redlands,” Cr Williams said.

“In addition, Council will also provide almost $1.9 million to our libraries, Redland Performing Arts Centre and the Redland Art Gallery for public art and acquisitions.’’

More than $6.3 million will fund waste, water and wastewater projects, including wastewater treatment plant and sewerage pump upgrades.

Capital expenditure program at a glance:

  • $22.9 million for roads projects, including the Green Seal Program, Regional Road Alliance Program and resurfacing and rehabilitation programs.
  • $16.6 million for infrastructure, including footpaths and expansion of the Redlands IndigiScapes Centre, bus shelter and seat renewals,.
  • $7.9 million for marine and foreshore projects.
  • $6.3 million for water, waste and wastewater projects.
  • More than $4.1 million to go towards renewing playgrounds, parks and sports fields.

Quandamooka flora holds deep connections to knowledge


As Redlands embraces the fourth annual Quandamooka Festival, Redlands Art Gallery’s current exhibition will open our minds to Minjerribah’s (North Stradbroke Island) beautiful plant life and the intricate part it plays in the Quandamooka knowledge systems.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams thanked the Quandamooka people for sharing their very special heritage with all who come here and said that the exhibition was a truly vibrant example of that heritage.

In Gadal Gajal Bujongja Quandamookajen (Bushes and Leaves: Flora from Quandamooka Mother Earth), Salt Water Murris Quandamooka Inc artists pay respect to the significance and spirit of the flora of Bujongja Quandamooka.

“This wonderful celebration of traditional Quandamooka art is an opportunity for people to come together to celebrate thousands of years of heritage and how it enriches our lives in the Redlands,” Cr Williams said.

At the heart of the relationship between Quandamooka people and the flora of Minjerribah is the connection of current generations to old people Country, customs, laws, traditions and stories handed down by ancestors.

Cr Williams said that Redland City Council, as a founding partner of the fourth annual Quandamooka Festival, was proud to exhibit these important works in the Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba.

“Traditional culture has grown increasingly important to our community and people seek to learn about Quandamooka culture and traditions.”

Cr Williams recently attended the World Indigenous Tourism Summit and visited New Zealand cultural tourism enterprises with representatives of the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) and the tourism industry.

“There’s no doubt the Redlands’ rich Quandamooka heritage will contribute significantly to the city’s economic future.”
