      Readership about quadrupled in 2013. The most popular day, for some reason, was back in June when 1,896 “unique visitors” accessed the site that day. The overwhelming bulk of those visitors came from web sites in the Bribie Island area.

      Thank you for that information, Rodney. The cost of providing water services in MBRC has been the subject of a number of MBI Facebook entries. The Mayor and Council have blamed all the Unity Water increases on the cost of bulk water from the State Government and have refused to take any responsibility. Your numbers show that the cost for fixed charges has almost trebled since 2011. That is a Unity Water levy (= a Council levy) and has nothing to do with the State Government. Clearly, the ratepayers are not being told the correct story and Unity Water is being used by Council as a back door means of increasing taxes
