Counting the cost is in real dispute in Noosa vote lead-up

MEMBER for Noosa Glen Elmes is convinced that the final cost of a new Noosa Council splitting from the Sunshine Coast can be less that the $13.6 million quoted by Local Government Minister David Crisafulli.

"I personally believe there are savings to be had from the QTC projections. On the question of rate rises, this is a matter for a newly elected Noosa Council and no one else."

But two former senior public servants living in Noosa, Peter Burke and George O'Farrell, said the QTC findings "send a clear message".

"To maintain the current level of services, rates for each ratepayer will rise by $260 in year one and $138 in each of the following years.

"Even more worrying are the QTC findings that by 2017 the new council will have accumulated $6.4 million in debt."
