Key points from QTC’s report on the cost of Council de-amalgamations

In 2012/2013 Queensland Treasury Corporation (QTC) provided de-amalgamation analyses identifying one-off costs that de-amalgamated councils were likely to incur.   Four regional council areas were permitted to de-amalgamated at that time and the costs, in some cases, were sixty percent below the figures quoted by QTC.  QLGRA committee member David Horner’s summary of the key points from the QTC report as presented to the Maryborough AGM are published below.
