Responded By: Hon Desley Boyle MP on 17/12/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that the Townsville City Council is mismanaging public revenue.  The Mayor of Townsville has introduced a massive rate rise on the public and put council into over $400 million debt.  The people of Townsville have no confidence in the Mayor.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to call in an administrator, so that new elections can be held.
