Job seekers should head for the city of Ipswich, according to the latest employment
numbers. The city at the epicentre of growth in the western corridor has again
recorded low unemployment with a 12 month average of just 4.1%.
Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale said the city was below the state average of 4.3%.
"The hard work in recent years creating master planned communities with nearby
business and industry centres has boosted job opportunities," he said.
"This strong employment result again con rms Ipswich as a generator of jobs.
In line with the prospective growth predicted for the region, the Council delivered
a budget recently which re ects the massive in ux of people moving to the area."
Cr Pisasale said new housing forecasts predict demand for dwellings and
households would grow by 224% in the next 21 years.
"This is more than three times the growth prospects of any other city in Queensland.
To meet this massive demand we need to build 90 homes a week," Cr Pisasale said.
While rates will rise along with water costs due to the new water restructuring,
Ipswich City Council has earmarked $207 million in works programs including over
$72 million for major road improvements in the 2010/11 budget. The increase on
general rates was announced at 5.54% which the Mayor said council had worked
very hard at to keep low. The owner occupied average rate rise will amount to $1.19
per week over last nancial year.
Other highlights of the budget included over $800,000 to boost the Safe City
surveillance program, and $30 million for improvements to parks and reserves.
"Business and industry can be con dent when investing in Ipswich," Cr Pisasale said.
