Tully Coastguard Radio Installation, Mount Mackay

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

James Wickerson
35 Luff Street

Total Signatures - 1002

Sponsoring Member: Andrew Cripps MP

Posting Date: 16/02/2017

Tabled Date: 16/02/2017

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 23/03/2017

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 that the Tully Coastguard has a radio installation co-located with Ergon Energy infrastructure on top of Mount Mackay - east of Tully - but that Ergon Energy now wants $10,000 upfront and an annual fee of more than $10,000, which is beyond the Tully Coastguard's budget.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to: require the Minister for Energy to intervene and direct Ergon Energy to withdraw the requirement for the Tully Coastguard to pay to continue to co-locate its radio installation on top of Mount Mackay in recognition of the vital community safety service it provides to all vessels in the Cassowary Coast Region.
