If only the government didnt cream off an admin fee.
Saw the rangers at Hinze installing this sign at Hinze eastern arm today.

Great to see as every permit helps.

Ray, without the Admin fee, how do you think they would be able to erect the signs?

Admin break-up is as follows:

Online sales costs             $7 145            3.3
Postage                           $3 882            1.8
Miscellaneous              $4 580            3.0
Stationery & Printing    $17 912            8.4
Salaries                        $178 861           83.5

Before you jump up and down about the salaries.  That amount would not cover three qualified people when you take superannuation, taxes and workers' compensation into account.  I don't see anthing in there for fuel or vehicle running expenses either.
This is the best system in the country, and possibly the world for maintaining a native fishery.  IMHO

Dale in a perfect world there would be no admin charges and the admin would be just a part of the normal Deedi budget, maybe i am just greedy and want to see all the dollars go into stocking.
From speaking to a couple of people in Deedi I think that there is a fair bit of undercharging going on already.
I always try and talk people into buying a yearly permit and to buy it on line to try and get maximium dollars for restocking with minium overheads but realise that the local tackle stores and other outlets that sell the permits need people to come into their stores.

Thanks for sharing Dale,

Do you know how Lake Monduran fared???

If only the government didnt cream off an admin fee.

Couldn't agree more, after talking to other interstate anglers.

DEEDI go by the Dam in their report, not the Lake. 

Advancetown Lake = Hinze Dam
Lake Proserpine = Peter Faust Dam
Lake Monduran = Fred Haig Dam  etc.

Fred Haig dam was third in the tick boxes, and second overall in votes after Lake Somerset

Thanks for posting Dale, would have to agree 100%, the best system in the country.
In regards to my own stocking group (PRFMA) was surprised to see us in 9th spot.
Should have been on the SIPS scheme from the start IMO, the extra funding would have been a great help in the dry years.
This year will be able to restart stocking some toga in reasonable numbers again instead of the handful we have been able to beg, borrow or otherwise aquire in the last five years or so.

cheers,
Steve.

I tried to tell PRFMA that for years Steve.................. Finally convinced them but almost didn't make it. There was some opposition from above. Sanity (with persuasion) prevailed.

With that sort of funding coming in it will be interesting to see what the PRFMA do about their annual boating permit fees, which was previously their main revenue source for stocking.

I agree with Ray, the Govt should fund  DEEDI for the management of the SIP, be less than the cost of a single politician!  Other than that it is a great system.

only thing wrong with the sign is that Hinze is not part of the SIP scheme.

Wonder if the sign is an indication the existing Hinze Fishing Permit  is to be replaced in the future by the SIP.

Just got the following email from SEQ water. Instant response as I only wrote to them last night.How good is that?
Cheers
Ray.
Ray,

 

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.  The sign is incorrect - I should have checked more thoroughly before they were printed.

 

I have asked our Lead Ranger for Hinze, Laurie Fairall, to remove the ones that indicate that you need a SIPS permit. We will get replacements printed advising that a permit is required (as per the signage at the permanent ramps).

 

I have also asked Laurie to look into putting some gravel at the base of the ramp to improve access, as per your request.

 

If you have any further queries, please contact us.

 

Regards,

Dom

Boating permit fees were reduced this year, the first full year SIPS money was received.

cheers,
Steve
