Bailiffs working for Ross and Roberts have the power to visit businesses outside of normal business hours and in many circumstances, this is a good thing. Their bailiffs have extensive knowledge of business practices and are highly trained. They can also visit pubs, restaurants, clubs and other business premises out of hours. In the event of a complaint, Ross and Roberts have an independent compliance department that will investigate the matter. Consequently, they can be trusted to do a good job.
Ross Roberts was a hard working man
Known as the “Father of the Ford Explorer,” Ross Roberts helped turn a truck from a fringe product to a mainstream vehicle. He also embraced a love of the outdoors and took part in various charity events. He believed in God and firmly believed that those who die are closer to their loved ones than they are to them when they are still alive. He will be remembered with a celebration of his life on November 27 at 900 Douglas Rd.
During the trial, much of the focus was placed on alleged threats against Roberts’ life. Numerous character witnesses testified to these threats, and other evidence focused on Roberts’ general reputation for quietude and peace. The prosecution’s case relied on other evidence to prove that Roberts was capable of carrying out the threats. Roberts’ trial, therefore, became a case of a hard working man who put his family and his career before his own.
He was a member of the Queensland Rural Fires Council
Foster joined the fire brigade because he wanted to help his community and make friends. He probably spent the next few days or weeks fighting the fire, which was likely to have raged for a few more days. He described the work as exhausting and fulfilling. But he was happy to do it, and is proud to have been a part of the Queensland Rural Fires Council for nearly 20 years.
He was elected by his colleagues as a member of the RFSQ, and he also serves on the Queensland Rural Fires Council. The RFSQ is made up of professional firefighters and on call paid auxiliary firefighters. The service covers a larger area than urban fire stations, but each brigade has responsibility for a particular geographic area. The RFSQ also manages the emergency services for the Gladstone Region.

In 2010, he retired from CSIRO, but returned to serve as an Honorary Fellow in its Water and Wastewater Division.

He was a member of the Nathan Dam Community Committee on Dawson River Water Supplies
The Nathan Dam Case was a major test case in environmental impact assessment. It involved a proposal to build a dam on the Dawson River in central Queensland, with water from the reservoir used for farming and other development. The Great Barrier Reef was a major concern for conservationists who feared that chemicals from crops would pollute the area, destroying its iconic beauty. The Federal Environment Minister acknowledged the danger of chemical runoff, but refused to include it in the project’s assessment under the EPBC Act. Instead, they only included the project’s immediate and indirect impacts.
The Irrigation Scheme began in 1926, with the land surrounding the dam being allocated to selected selectors for a total of 30,000 acres. The land was cultivated as cotton, with yields as high as two and a half bales per acre. At that time, the dam was a pilot irrigation scheme for the entire country. In 1931, a community committee was formed to monitor the development of the dam.
