    Burdekin Shire Council will next week begin dispersing flying foxes from trees in Home Hill’s Lloyd Mann Park.

    Council’s Governance and Local Laws Manager Dan Mulcahy said the dispersal activities would take place from 4.30am next Tuesday, November 4, through to Thursday, November 6.

    “We have noticed a number of flying foxes roosting in the trees there again and want to move quickly to disperse them,” he said.

    “Council will have three employees using starter’s pistols from 4.30am to discourage the flying foxes from roosting in the park.

    “We need to start this early to prevent the flying foxes from settling into the trees and they usually start returning to roost around dawn.”

    Mr Mulcahy said residents with pets in the vicinity of the dispersal activities would need to ensure their pets were adequately secured to reduce the risk of escape.

    “Council will continue to monitor Lloyd Mann Park during this phase to ensure the colony has relocated to a more suitable area,” he said.

    “Further dispersal activities within Home Hill may occur if the need arises.”

    Mr Mulcahy urged residents to contact council if they know of a flying fox roost within a town area.

    Fancy yourself a bit of a singer, but too scared to take the stage alone? Why not join the Combined Community Choir and be a part of this year’s Carols on the Green.

    Planning is well under way for the event which this year will be held at Watson’s Green in Home Hill on Sunday, December 7.

    Production Manager Adam Dudley is encouraging as many people as possible to join the choir.

    “The more people we get, the more impressive we will sound and on top of that it should be a lot of fun,” he said.

    “I know it sounds strange, but you really don’t need to be a singer to be in a choir.

    “What we’re looking for are enthusiastic people who can spare the time for two evening rehearsals and then sing their heart out on the night of Carols.”

    Mr Dudley will host two rehearsals at the Burdekin Community Church (opposite the senior soccer fields in Ayr) at 7pm on Tuesday, November 25 and Tuesday, December 2.

    If you would like to join, simply come along on the first rehearsal night or contact Mr Dudley on 0407 234 485.

    For further information about Carols on the Green contact Burdekin Shire Council Community Development Officer Kelly Lund on (07) 4783 9832 or email

    Burdekin blokes are being urged to take an oath to stop violence against women next week.

    Burdekin Shire Council Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the oaths would be taken as part of White Ribbon Day in Ayr on Friday, November 7.

    “This is a great opportunity for local men to come together and show they will not tolerate violence against women,” he said.

    “The morning is being organised by the Burdekin Community Association and they have lined up a couple of great speakers – Townsville District White Ribbon Day Ambassador Sergeant Mark Lance and Home Hill Officer in Charge Sergeant Brett Smith.

    “I would encourage our local blokes to show their support by coming along and swearing an oath as part of a nationwide campaign to stop violence against women.”

    The Swear Your Oath for White Ribbon Day breakfast will be held at 7am on Friday, November 7, at Clove Restaurant in Ayr.

    If you are interested in attending, please contact Seanne O’Shea or Rebecca Grogan at the Burdekin Community Association on 4783 3744 by October 31, 2014. Tickets are $25 for full buffet breakfast and can be purchased from the Burdekin Community Association.

    Defence offers economic opportunities for Burdekin

    The Burdekin’s Economic Development Strategic Advisory Group (EDSAG) has started exploring defence housing and procurement requirements with the aim of drawing more residents and business opportunities to the region.

    Group chairman Dan Horan said the Australian Defence Force was an untapped market which had not been considered in the past.

    “In the past the focus had been on getting the defence personnel to visit the Burdekin, but now we want to get them to see the Burdekin as an alternative place to live,” he said.

    “We have a great region for families with plenty of schools, childcare and casual employment opportunities.

    “Combine that with our great rural community spirit and the fact we are only an hour from Townsville and I think the Burdekin is an ideal alternative to city life.”

    Burdekin Shire Council Economic Development Manager Adrian Scott said Council also would attend the Defence Expo held in Townsville to promote living in the Burdekin to defence personnel.

    “Council has attended these expos in the past, but the aim then was to entice defence personnel and their families to visit the Burdekin,” he said.

    “We will attend next year’s Expo and work toward getting families to consider living here.

    “We will contact Defence Housing Australia to see what information we need to provide them to see the Burdekin as an alternative home base.

    “It would be great if we can capture some of the families who are relocating to Townsville.”

    Mr Scott said EDSAG also highlighted the opportunities to boost the region’s economic development through Defence procurement.

    “We will be looking into that further and working with local businesses to see if this is something they want to be part of,” he said.

    “There are plenty of opportunities to be had in the Defence sector.”

    Interested businesses can contact Eliza Lovell on 4783 9831 or via email .

    Would you like to win $100 cash or a family pass to Reef HQ or Billabong Sanctuary? All you have to do is create a wearable piece of art from recyclable materials and enter the Trash is Trendy competition.

    You could use regular household plastics such as milk bottles and food containers to make unique jewellery or use plastic bags to create an outfit. The limit is your imagination.

    Make sure you enter your creation at the Burdekin Shire Council chambers in Young Street, Ayr, before November 5. All entries will be displayed at the Council’s National Recycling Week display at the Home Hill Harvest Festival Mardi Gras on November 8. Winners will be announced at the Mardi Gras.

    Recycling plastics lessens the chance of them turning up in our natural environment. Plastics can take hundreds of years to break down and become an environmental hazard. Plastic if left out in the elements generally breaks down into small pieces and pollutes land and waterways becoming a choking hazard for fish, birds and animals.

    Burdekin Shire Council Governance and Local Laws Manager Dan Mulcahy said the best way to limit the plastic waste and prevent rubbish going to landfill was to avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle.

    “Council’s Waste Audit last year found recyclable plastics made up almost four per cent of waste in the red bin and ended up in the Kirknie Road Landfill instead of being reused or recycled,” he said.

    “So really our residents are doing a great job in identifying what plastics can be recycled, but there is always room for improvement.

    “Recyclable plastics have a code on their base and the items numbered 1-6 can be placed in your yellow recycle bin.

    “Plastic is also free for residents to dispose of at transfer stations and Kirknie Landfill if household general waste and recyclables have been separated.”

    Mr Mulcahy said plastic shopping bags were not recyclable.

    “Residents can take them to Woolworths in Ayr where there is a collection bin or reuse them as bin liners, but please don’t use them to bag your recyclables,” he said.

    Council publishes details of all animals that have been surrendered, impounded, or left at the pound.

    Due to the number of animals that we see each week, we are only able to hold animals for 3 working days.

    If you have lost an animal, or if you would like to adopt an animal from our pound, please contact our Animal Control Officers via the Customer Service Centre on (07) 4783 9800.
