Tabled Date: 23/11/2010

Responded By: Hon Stephen Robertson MP on 24/12/2010

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

The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House to the fact that Townsville City Council will make a profit of over $50 million on water and wastewater provision in Townsville.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to direct the Townsville City Council to redirect the profits back to the residents of Townsville in the form of reduced rates or subsidies for water users.
