  • Primary school students learn about pest management with interactive Fox Detection Dog visit

    Emu Park State School students received a special visit from a fox detection dog yesterday, helping to raise awareness about pest animals and Council’s pest management strategies.

    Portfolio holder for Water, Waste Management and the Environment, Councillor Andrea Friend said the fox detection dog display at the school was aimed at raising awareness of the positive work within pest management throughout Livingstone.

    “This project has been a fantastic opportunity to work in close partnership with the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, Fitzroy Basin Association, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, and a number of private land owners for the past three years,” Cr Friend said.

    “By working together across all land tenures on the Capricorn Coast, this has increased our success in managing pests that are impacting on our native wildlife such as turtle nests, curlews and ground nesting birds.

    “The students were fascinated by the dog’s skills and learnt about the importance of pest management in our Shire. They were able to interact with the dog by giving it a piece of material with a pest’s scent and hiding it in various locations throughout the school grounds for the dog to locate.

    “The display was an effective example of raising awareness and providing education to our community’s younger generation. The display not only raised the importance of pest management, it also highlights the impacts pests can have on our beautiful natural environment.

    “These impacts can lead to reduced populations of native species, a decline in the quality and quantity of their habitats, and ultimately the extinction of some native species.

    “We live in a region that has a diverse landscape of beaches, bushland, open spaces, and rainforest. Consequently, it is important for residents to be aware of the types of pests that may inhabit their localities.”

    Residents can learn more about pest management by visiting Council’s website at www.livingstone.qld.gov.au.

    Tips for Pest Management

    • Secure food waste and ensure pet food bowls are emptied and clean

    • Monitor property for tracks and signs of pest animals (for example: bird carcasses)

    • Co-operative planning of control measures with neighbours improves success

    • Report any sightings of pest animals to local government, (for example fox dens)

  • Community identifies top priorities for Council's annual budget

    More investment in roads, economic development, parks and open spaces, sport, and community development projects are just some of the key areas residents would like to see considered in Council’s 2020/21 annual budget.

    Council’s Engagement and Events Team conducted a community survey earlier this year to gauge the community’s thoughts and ideas regarding its priorities for the 2020/21 budget.

    Mayor Andy Ireland said the survey would contribute towards providing a comprehensive scope to assist Council in planning and allocating funding towards capital works and community projects.

    “Council is forecast to invest $34 million towards the renewal of existing assets and construction of new assets for our growing Shire in line with the expectations of the community as captured in the Livingstone Community Plan: Towards 2050,” Cr Ireland said.

    “As a result of the fantastic feedback from this survey, the majority of residents who took part expressed their desire to see more funding allocated towards Council services including rural and urban road networks (gravel sheeting, sealing and resealing), shared pathways (cycle ways, rail trails and footpaths), drainage (floodway construction, kerb and channel, flood mitigation), waste recycling (transfer stations, landfills, education programmes) and wastewater (sewerage, network upgrades and water recycling).

    “Overall the community was clear on what it would like to see in the way of improving our Shire’s services and facilities through enhanced liveability, a thriving community and stronger communication between Council and the community.

    “Livingstone is welcoming, connected, and resilient with a relaxed community spirit, celebrated for its natural beauty, vibrant culture, and thriving economy and Council’s vision is to continue to build on that principle for the betterment of our Shire and its residents.”

    Council is currently undertaking budget deliberations, with the annual budget expected to be adopted in July.

    You can view the survey results via Councils interactive dashboard https://getinvolved.livingstone.qld.gov.au/ under the Previous Events and Activities Tab.
