General Business

Peter said that a special Executive Meeting had been called as we now have an anonymous donation of

$20,000 to pay for the removal and relocation of the old school.  Peter will write a personal letter of thanks. Peter contacted Burke Industries for them to arrange for the removal of the asbestos.  April or May would be the earliest the Wassells could remove the building.  The fees for the removal and relocation of $724 are to be paid to the Council.  The building can then be moved once we receive the asbestos clearance.  The cupboards are to go to the Taylors.  Peter will check with Brendan re. securing the steel trusses on the back of the building.  The school is to be the same height as the Shearer’s Quarters and John Camomile knows where the underground power is located.  We will have to disconnect the water and power from the school. 

Peter has $1045 to be banked from the slot machine at the Jandowae Hotel.

Peter reported that Ros received a phone call from a lady about the signs.

Jan suggested that we may need to dig around the far side of the island to protect the animals living on it.

The fence adjacent to the heritage precinct has been renewed. 

The Business Group has now been incorporated and we no longer have the number 2 account.

Margaret is to check our the tax deductability requirements for donations to our Association.

Peter is to see Tony Brame about the bricks that have to be removed from the site.

$48 was received from the Burra Burri School on their recent visit.

The linings inside the old school can be removed before the building is relocated.  It has been reroofed.

Jan thanked everyone for their help on Australia Day.

The meeting congratulated Daryl on his Western Downs Regional Citizenship Award.

The Association donated $20 to Amelia for the Leukaemia Foundation. 

Daryl reminded us we still have the Court House furniture.

The storage area in the quarters needs a good clean out.  A small shed with iron walls and on a cement block could be built for the mower in the future. 

The next meeting will be on Monday 18th March at the Cultural Centre.
