Have your say on substantial cuts to Council services, projects and events

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board

Brace yourself. Substantial cuts to Auckland Council and Kaipātiki Local Board services, projects and events ahead, plus an increase in asset sales, increase in debt, and a 3.5% or 2.5% rates rise.
For example, "A minimum reduction of 80-90% of planned 2020/2021 renewals for buildings, playgrounds and open space. This level of reduction will mean a noticeable deterioration of community assets and a risk of closure of assets should they become a health and safety risk (example broken walkways, broken play equipment, leaking buildings with dampness or mould issues)."

Have your say on the proposed "Emergency Budget" for 2020/21 here: akhaveyoursay.nz/emergency-budget
Consultation is open until 19 June.
