Cr McKay - Maleny changes pace
  • Friday 09 January 2015

In the interest of community safety, new 50 km/h speed limit signs will soon be installed on Obi Lane, Maleny. Please always drive to the speed limit and be mindful of other motorists, as well as pedestrians and cyclists, sharing the road.
Helping local community groups
I’m pleased to have been able to contribute some divisional discretional funding to assist our wonderful Maleny Community Centre (MCC) to be able to meet their infrastructure charges responsibilities.
The MCC has been owned and run by the community of Maleny for more than 100 years and receives no ongoing government support. The MCC works collaboratively with many other community organisations to provide social and cultural amenity in the region.
Summer reading
As well as many wonderful events and activities being held at Sunshine Coast Libraries over the summer holidays to keep the kids entertained, I highly recommend participating in the Summer Reading Club.
My grandchildren are all excited to get involved in this great initiative which is about encouraging a continued love of reading and ongoing multi-literacy skills development among children and young people.
For full details, head to council’s library website.
New pound
A new animal pound to better accommodate and manage the region’s current and future small and large animal populations has now moved a step closer.  Council showed their commitment to safely house homeless, lost or abandoned animals by recently endorsing the design of a much needed new pound facility at Sippy Creek.
Work on construction of the new pound will commence at the earliest possible time, following a project cost review to be referred to the 2015/2016 Budget deliberation process.
