“I have given a commitment to the people of Mount Isa that in the next council budget we will abolish the $440 levy and, as a result of some other activities taking place, we will be in a position to reduce water rates,” he said.

“If I can’t do that, I will resign after the budget.’’

Cr McGrady said those who turned up for the public form on Thursday night had plenty of questions.

“I’m absolutely delighted. Over 200 people turned up and they have obviously done their homework as the standard of questions were some of the best I have ever heard,” he said.

“Whilst people didn’t always agree or were not always happy with the answer, I think they accepted it,’’ he said.

‘‘The meeting was held, I think, in a very dignified manner and I think that every person that came has gone home at least understanding the situation and problems and that’s what a caring community should always do, have the information so that they understand the reasons why the governments, whether it is state, federal or local, have to make the decision that they do.”
