th
July.

OBSERVERS:
Kim Fawcus suggested that the Committee shouldinvite an “observer” from the Shire of Murrindindi to the meeting. This brought about some passionate discussion. In general, theFlowerdale Committee did not agree with this suggestion.Further discussion listed other “observers” who may also beinvited including DEECD, Section 86 Committee, VicUrban. MostFlowerdale Committee members spoke strongly against thesuggestion. The Committee pointed out that the meetingscheduled for Monday 13
th
July is a
Flowerdale
meeting. Therepresentatives of the committees (listed in Point 4 above),together with facilitators could work very well without“observers”. Some members of the Committee felt that honestexpression of opinions (which are vital to a successful outcome),may be stifled if the meeting was being “observed”. Somemembers of the Committee felt that observationwasdemeaning. Some members of the Committee expressed that,as we have never been invited to “observe” any Council, Section86 or DEECD meetings, these groups should not imposethemselves on the Flowerdale meeting. The idea of “observers” was disbanded with Kim Fawcus sayingthat if the Committee does not want to have “observers” thennone will be invited.

TH
JULY: COMMUNITY FORUM
OUTLINE OF THE DAY:
9-11am Junior Land Care Tree Planting
9 end of day Child Care & kiddy food at FlowerdalePrimary School (funded by VBRRA)
11.00 Morning Tea
11.30 Community Forum (including lunch) The committee agreed that we should not post an ending time,so as to allow the meeting to run its course.
THE COMMUNITY:
 There was some discussion around methodsof attracting as many members of the Flowerdale Community,near and far, to the meeting. It was agreed that there should bea good cross-section of people who are representative of theFlowerdale Community. John informed the meeting that as of today, the Council has finally agreed to a mail-out to allratepayers. Recovery newsletters, the Flowerdale Flyer, UGFMradio, and word of mouth are all being used to harness as manyresidents as possible. Judy pointed out that numbers would bebolstered if the meeting were to take place in a more centralposition than the Rec Reserve. This lead to a discussion on thebest venue.
 
VENUE:
 The ideal venue is the Hall, but the Market is scheduledfor the same day. Some Market Stalls are indoors. Food is soldduring the market from the Hall kitchen. There was a strongfeeling that we should re-visit the Hall because it is a familiar,central and non-threatening environment which will attract morepeople to the meeting. There was strong feeling that we try toblend the whole day for the mutual benefit of Stall Holders, theHall Committee and the Community. Kim Fawcus, on behalf of VBRRA, said they would pay for a marquee for the stall-holders,and for the catering for the day. The meeting agreed that theHall Committee be able to boost revenue by selling morning teasto those attending the meeting and the morning teas would bepaid for by VBRRA. It was agreed that Judy Baker wouldapproach the Hall Committee to seek agreement to a sharedday.
