Port levy scrapped after it generated double what it was intended for initially

Not sure who does the accounting for the state government. But a levy at Geraldton's port that was put in place to repay a $107 million loan in 2003, actually generated $210 million, and only reduced the loan by $40 million.

Not everyone is happy with the levy being scrapped though.
