The parliamentary inquiry into residential strata insurance in tropical Queensland rolls into town rolls at the end of the month. Public submissions to this inquiry close next Monday 16 January and should make for some interesting light reading. Public hearings are to be held later this month in Port Douglas, Cairns, Townsville and Mackay:
- Port Douglas – Monday 30th January, Port Douglas Community Hall, Mowbray St 9am – 12pm
- Cairns – Monday 30th January, Sebel Hotel, 17 Abbott St 2:30pm – 5:30pm

Recent commentary related to Council rates and strata units has also been noted as local elections draw closer and Loose Change is sure to return to this topic being a subject of keen personal interest.
