This letter includes the transition board’s recommendation and an outline of the elements of the offer to transition to local management.
In January 2018, all customers of the St George channel irrigation scheme will be sent an offer document setting out the proposed terms of the transition to local management. Customers will have six weeks to return the accompanying customer response form, advising whether they support local management. A customer meeting to discuss the offer was held on Monday, 5 February, 2018.
For local management to proceed, customers representing at least 70% of the water allocations by volume will need to accept the offer and at least 50% (of water allocations by volume) will need to elect to become members.
Once the offer is released documents relating to the offer made to scheme customers will be available below and a list of questions and answers specifically related to the St George Offer document will be accessible.
Irrigators who own a water allocation that is supplied in the channel scheme need to complete and sign the response form, which will be enclosed with the offer document, and return in the reply paid envelope provided to GPO Box 419, Brisbane, 4001.
For more information, or assistance in completing the customer response form, please contact LMA Support Services at email@example.com or on 0468 960 538 or contact a member of the board.
