Inquiry to meet this month
THE Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry will hold community meetings this month in Taroom, Roma, Charleville, Cunnamulla and Warwick.
Any members of these communities affected by the floods are welcome to attend.
Deputy Commissioner Jim O’Sullivan is holding the meetings to give members of the community information about the Inquiry and explain how people can participate in the Inquiry process.
In addition to the community meetings, the Inquiry will hold public hearings around the state including in Bundaberg, Maryborough, Gympie and Emerald in October.
The second round of the Inquiry will examine issues under the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference, with a particular focus on insurance and land planning.
The community meetings are closed to the media, but participants may wish to speak to media outside the meetings. Public hearings will be held in open court.
The Warwick meeting will be held on Thursday at the Southern Downs Regional Council chambers at the corner of Albion and Fitzroy Streets, from 4pm to 6pm.
