Sign Petition to help support our case for A New Granite Belt Council
The data that underpins the Queensland Treasury Corporation (QTC) Report is incorrect as it does not adhere to the basic principle of the Local Government Act 2009.
“The purpose of this Act is to provide for the way in which a local government is constituted and the nature and extent of its responsibilities and powers and a system of local government in Queensland that is accountable, effective, efficient and sustainable.”
The “estimated” staffing numbers used in the QTC report for the proposed Granite Belt Regional Council (GBRC) do not reflect “efficient” local government.
The costs of de-amalgamation that have been estimated in the QTC report for the GBRC are grossly exaggerated at $7.09m.
MYTH BUSTERS – NO. 1
Myth: Warwick ratepayers currently subsidise council services to Granite Belt residents by around 20 per cent.
This myth is false.
