Logan City’s annual Ekka holiday will go ahead as planned on Monday.
The Queensland Government today announced the People’s Day Ekka holiday in Brisbane, scheduled for next Wednesday, has been postponed to a date to be confirmed.
Logan City Council has decided to keep the long-scheduled public holiday on Monday given the late notice to postpone would have created uncertainty for our community.
It also risked disrupting plans put in place by City of Logan residents, business owners, local schools and public transport schedulers.
The health, safety and wellbeing of staff and the community is Council’s top priority.
In the past week, Council has acted on the direction of the Queensland Government and the Chief Health Officer and has closed facilities and restricted some services during the pandemic lockdown through to this Sunday at 4pm.
With uncertainty at this stage over how long the lockdown may last – and the Monday public holiday in Logan City – the August round of Council’s committee meetings next week will not have a public gallery.
Each meeting remains open and transparent to the public and media through an audio and video live-stream. The live-streams will be on Council’s YouTube page.
Tuesday, August 10, from 9am:
- City Planning, Economic Development and Environment Committee • City Infrastructure Committee (begins 10 minutes after the previous meeting’s conclusion)
Wednesday, August 11, from 9am:
- City Lifestyle Committee
- City Governance Committee (begins 10 minutes after the previous meeting’s conclusion)
