The official name is Breakaway Creek, but long-term Mount Isa locals call it Stinky Creek, and it appears to be living up to its nickname again.
In Wednesday's general meeting of Mount Isa City Council, Cr Kim Coghlan asked if Council knew about the problem which she said was in the area of the creek where Ryan Rd meets Miles St.
Cr Coghlan said there were reports the unknown smell was getting worse and was spreading in a 200 metre radius of the creek.
Council CEO Sharon Ibardolaza had no explanation for the smell and said they would take the matter on notice and get back to Cr Coghlan.
Also discussed at Wednesday's meeting was the Council administration's current shortened opening hours of 10am to 2pm due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Karren MacClure, Director Corporate and Financial Services, told councillors they would probably look at extending opening hours when stage 2 easing begins on June 12.
In the minutes of the previous meeting on May 13, items discussed in closed business included an agreement to formalise water supply arrangements for Old Mica Creek Road and Duchess Road, the extension of the leases of Mount Isa Cancer House and the Mount Isa Meals on Wheels building, both for 15 years.
A report on the proposed Mount Isa Transport and Logistic Centre was due to be discussed in closed business in the May 27 meeting.
