With the election just a week away, here is a rundown of all Te Tai Tokerau candidates, the Māori seat for Northland and north Auckland.
Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council and the Government have declared climate emergencies. But the proposed 10 year budget, spruns a bolder action programme that would cost 44 cents a week more per ratepayer. Do you agree? Read the story below:
Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.
The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.
The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.
