Only two people turn up to council visit to Agnes Water
ONLY two people turned up to this morning's Councillor Connect visit to Agnes Water, which is the lowest attendance Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers has ever seen.
The visit, which happens once a month at different areas, usually sees at least 10 people at the Agnes Water trip.
But today was different, with just two people, and to Cr Sellers surprise, there was no mention of rates.
She said they had rates paperwork and information about water and other charges ready.
"It was really disappointing.
"The weather was absolutely perfect today, so perhaps everyone was doing what the people at Agnes Water do, go to the beach," she said.
One of the attendees had just started up a business, and Cr Sellers said, "She just came to say hello really".
"The other person had lived there for 15 years and is heavily involved in the community. He's trying to organise an event next year," she said.
Cr Sellers made a post on her Facebook page, sharing the news.
"But (sic) disappointed today only two people along to our Councillor Connect session. Am I able to take from this that we are doing everything right?" she posted.
