Look carefully at your latest rates bill folks.

Robin from Botany Downs

On the subject of our wonderful council, property owners should take a close look at your rates bill for the current quarter. My eagle eyed wife spotted that the charge for this quarter was 15% higher than the last instalment, so I checked the time period (maybe this quarter covered a longer time period) but no significant difference. So we paid the same amount as last quarter and will require a letter of explanation before they get another red cent. The really annoying thing as others have pointed out is that they dont give a stuff about ratepayers, are quite happy to destroy our neighbourhoods in the name of progress (remember, anything done in the name of progress of man benefits only one wealthy group at the expense of everyone else) and use ratepayers as a piggy bank to fund their vanity projects. For example, Britomart which wrecked passenger rail transport in Auckland and now this idiotic light rail to the airport which will benefit nobody in our East Auckland neighbourhood, in our, or even our children's lifetimes.
Hmmm, Waihi is starting to look good.
