Central Parklands News Update
Updated May 14, 2022
As decided at the AGM, the swimming pool will be resurfaced during winter, starting on June 6. As this will be a construction zone, access will be restricted as the contractor carries out this work. It is expected to reopen in mid-August, subject to rain and COVID delays.
It has been decided that the cut off for issues to be discussed at the monthly Committee meeting is now 1 week before the committee meeting. After that it will go through to the following month. This is to ensure there is sufficient time to process the issue and for the committee to consider it.
There is now a new Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for residents use, in the Rec Centre ground floor area. This is a fully automatic unit for assisting in an emergency with anyone with a heart issue. Please make yourself aware of its location when you are next in the Rec Centre. It could save a life.
Minutes of committee meetings can always be accessed via the portal
Greg is looking for more BCC Waste Vouchers, if you have some spare. Please drop them up to him.
Facilities and Grounds
All Recreational Centre facilities are available. Communal crockery and cutlery are now available for use as all restrictions have been lifted. Residents are requested to follow directions on displayed signage and the continuing conditions as set by the Queensland Government. However, due to the ongoing health concerns, tea towels will no longer be provided. Instead, paper towels are provided for drying plates and cutlery.
There have been several noise complaints from residents about others in the Rec Centre area, tennis court and pool. Please respect other peoples rights by keeping noise to a moderate level, especially in the early morning or later at night.
There have been a number of instances of residents using the "EMERGENCY EXIT" pushbutton at the Entry Gates to the Rec Centre just to open the gates. Whenever this occurs, there is a call out required to the Deploy Security to reset the switch costing $200 each time. The Committee have decided this charge will be passed onto anyone found pressing the button when it is not a genuine emergency. Swipe cards ONLY are to be used for entry and exit.
Residents should contact BC Systems regarding any concerns or recommendations for the gardens and facilities or to report any fencing falling under body corporate responsibility requiring repair or replacement.
Additional or replacement tags for the Recreational Centre can be purchased at a cost of $15. These can be obtained by contacting the Complex Manager, Greg on 0412584311 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not hesitate to contact the committee should you have any queries. All correspondence is handled through BCSystems, use the forms available for requests or for other queries email@example.com. ABN: 53167360233.
