The 3 Waters Reform is important!

Cathy McIntosh from Ōrākei Local Board

Orakei Local Board is concerned that the proposed 3 Waters Reform will hamper/delay the important water quality work for Hobson Bay.
Please get online and support the councils proposed changes to the bill ensuring more local governance BEFORE 19 December.

What the reform means for Auckland?
The relationship between Auckland Council and the new entity will be more distant than it currently is between council and Watercare.
Currently Watercare is accountable to Aucklanders, through the elected members on Auckland Council's Governing Body.
Auckland Council appoints Watercare’s board of directors, and the law requires Watercare to comply with Auckland Council’s long-term plans and strategic direction.
In addition, the councillors approve Watercare’s Statement of Intent. A Statement of Intent is an organisation’s work programme and priorities for the next three years.
