Brisbane City Council has declared Friday 14th November a public holiday for the G20.  If your work place is located in the Brisbane City Council region (similar to the Ekka), then you are requested not to go to work.  The reason for this is to keep the roads clearer and help with security during the G20.

If you live inside the Brisbane City Council area and are planning to do some spring cleaning around the house for this long weekend please order your skip bin to be delivered on Thursday instead of Friday or Saturday.  Pick up on Monday will be as normal.
