    New look, new logo for Moreton Bay Regional Council

    Moreton Bay Regional

    Council has started the

    new year by adopting its

    new permanent logo.

    The logo - designed to

    reect the key characteristics

    of our Moreton Bay region -

    was developed over several

    months, taking into

    account valuable input from

    residents and community

    members, students, artists

    and council staff.

    The new logo will be rolled

    out over the coming months

    and will be featured on

    council vehicles, facilities,

    signs, stationery and


    The logo is a graphical

    depiction of our dynamic and

    diverse region:

    The wave of blue

    represents the bay and our


    The orange sweep and

    dots represent all the

    communities, as well

    as the individuals and

    families, who call our

    growing region home

    The roll of green

    represents our much-

    valued environmental

    areas and spectacular

    mountain ranges

    Each of the three main

    colours grow bolder as theymove from left to right, to

    reect the strength of our

    Moreton Bay region as we

    move forward and embrace

    the future, its opportunities

    and challenges.

    Importantly, the logo is

    much more than just a

    visual identity. It also

    conrms Moreton Bay

    Regional Councils status

    as a maturing, united local

    government - with a sharp

    community focus and strong

    commitment to meet the

    expectations of residents.

    Over the next three years,

    council and Queensland

    Health will deliver a free

    immunisation program to

    high school students in theMoreton Bay region.

    This is the rst time a free

    council-run immunisation

    program has been available

    to students attending

    schools in the Redcliffe and

    Caboolture districts.

    The move will help boost

    the health of young people

    and provide an effective

    means of reducing the

    spread of common diseases

    such as hooping cough and


    As part of the program,

    students in years eight and

    ten will also be vaccinated

    for Hepatitis B, Cervical

    Cancer, Diphtheria and

    Moreton Bay Regional

    Council and the RSPCA

    are promoting responsible

    animal ownership by

    encouraging residents

    to de-sex and micro-chip

    their pets.

    From 1 February, council

    will offer a $10 micro-

    chipping program for

    pets while from March,

    residents can take

    advantage of discounted

    de-sexing for cats.

    Its all part of a larger

    State Government funded

    study aimed at nding

    ways to reduce the

    number of euthanased

    animals in South-East


    Micro-chipping can

    dramatically increase

    the odds of an animal

    being reunited with its

    owners, because once a

    pet is micro-chipped, it is

    identiable for life.

    Under councils local

    laws, cats and dogs in the

    Moreton Bay region

    must be kept on their

    own properties and

    prevented from

    wandering or escaping.

    A major upgrade of the

    Burpengary East Sewage

    Treatment Plant will begin

    early this year and be

    completed by mid 2011.

    The upgrade will cater forthe booming population

    of the area while also

    improving the quality of

    the water which ows into

    the Caboolture River and

    Moreton Bay.

    Council recently accepted a

    $31 million contract for the

    main upgrading work which

    will form part of the overall

    $46.2 million project.

    Council will also upgrade

    the community of

    Donnybrook from septic

    systems to sewerage.

    A sewerage pump station

    will be constructed at

    Donnybrook to enable

    sewage to be treated at the

    Bribie Island Wastewater

    Treatment Plant.

    The project also has the

    potential to be expanded

    in the future to sewer the

    communities of Toorbul

    and Meldale, which

    are located between

    Donnybrook and Ningi.
