Thirteen community members have been appointed to serve on Toowoomba Regional Council’s (TRC) Regional Access and Disability Advisory Committee (RADAC).
The appointment of Wendy Adams, Helen Bawden, David Boden, Nadia Brady, Michelle Davies, Mary-Ann Garrahy, Joyce Jones, Joshua Marshall, John Napier, Noel Spain, Kim Stokes, Megan Telford and Susan Unger to RADAC was approved at today’s (September 15) TRC September Ordinary Meeting.
Council in June endorsed TRC Environment and Community Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon as RADAC chair with Cr James O’Shea, Environment and Community Services Committee chair, to act as the proxy.
Cr McMahon said the first meeting of the new voluntary advisory committee was expected to be held in October.
He said RADAC’s role was to represent the interests of people with a disability or access issues and inform Council about the extent of these issues and suggested solutions.
