Thank you, Madam Chair. I rise to speak on the committee presentation on the Rapid Responses Group. I want to echo Councillor ADAMS' words and say that I think that every single councillor in this Chamber, regardless of what side of Chambers you are on, would agree that the Rapid Response Council officers do a fabulous job.
I unfortunately had the personal experience of having to call them for myself when I was out walking in the ward and got bailed up by a dog. So I was in a panic, rang the contact centre and luckily for me they were only 15 minutes away in the next suburb so they were there rapidly, as the name suggests. Then as like what happened as soon as the dogs saw the gentleman getting out of the car, he was the one that ran away. So they obviously know these guys better than I do and what a wonderful job they do.
The other thing that we all call Rapid Response Group Council officers for is school parking. We all have schools in our ward, we all have problems with parking in our ward around schools and the Council officers are always there for us to go out there and deal with this issue for us. So I just want to say they do a wonderful job and I'm sorry I missed the presentation and hopefully I'll get another chance to see it again some time. Thank you.
