Council has noted a proposal from the ALP to get involved in the Mount Isa one hundred year celebrations but the Mayor is thinking the Mount Isa champions and even the royal family should be involved in 2023.
Wednesday's meeting noted correspondence which was a request to establish ALP Sub Committee of the 100 Years Celebration Committee.
Cr Slade, who is a member of the ALP left the room for the discussion and remaining councillors decided merely at this stage to note the correspondence, which the mayor agreed was the correct decision.
"We need to get the committee up and running and I want it up and running asap," Cr Slade said.
"We are going to be in October very quickly and we will be needing to send out invites to the Royal Family and people like Greg Norman and Pat Rafter, anyone and everyone who has contributed some way to Mount Isa."
Cr Slade said she wanted diverse people on the committee.
"The resolution that was put forward was to send out an invite to (former mayor) Ron McCullough to chair the committee," she said.
"He brings in 19 years of being the mayor of Mount Isa and years as a councillor and I'd love to get other people involved who have that love and attachment for Mount Isa."
Meanwhile Cr Slade said the YPA proposal for the Lake Moondarra youth camp could fit in with the Council's own "big picture" for the site.
"The question is do we let one group manage the facility or should be it be managed by Council so there are a lot of decisions to be made,' she said.
"It wasn't the first time I saw that presentation, they came in and saw after I just got elected mayor and I asked them to put something together for councillors. To me, they are taking small steps to get their idea across."
Cr Slade said although it did not seem to fit in with council's tourism strategy which proposes eco-glamping on the facility, it could still be looked at.
