Council turns to water and rates

Council consultations next week focus the spotlight on water and rates.

“We are committed to sharing our work and taking guidance from our public consultations,” said Mayor Rehette Stoltz.

“We are anticipating the subjects we are working on next week will spark a great deal of public interest, as we are proposing changes to our rates system, and of course water is always an important topic of interest in Tairāwhiti.”

As a way of promoting the message far and wide Council is offering an online hui on water, as well as three public rates meetings, which will also be livestreamed.

“All of these hui offer the community the opportunity to hear about Council’s work, the changes we are considering, and how we plan to move forward as a community,” Mayor Stoltz said.

“And they present you the opportunity to have your say with Council, to disagree, to put ideas forward, and to have your voice heard.”
