The Water Utility Consumer Assistance Trust provides financial support to residential customers of Watercare Services Ltd who are struggling to manage their water and/or wastewater costs. It is a charitable trust that receives funding from Watercare. The Trust can assist home owners and tenants (as long as there is a debt to Watercare and not the property manager or landlord).
The Trust is able to assist by setting up a payment plan to cover ongoing monthly Watercare invoices (the payments are made direct to Watercare) and the Trust is able to write off some, or all of the debt. The Trust also provides information on ways to save water, how to carry out a leak test, and other water saving incentives.
We have a website where an application form can be downloaded (www.waterassistance.org.nz) , and also have a Facebook page (Water Utility Consumer Assistance Trust). An application form can be emailed or posted (email: email@example.com or send message via Facebook)
Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council is looking to reduce the number of ratepayer funded carparks enjoyed by senior managers. It's down from 77 to 49. Is the council right to consider offering ATHOP cards instead? Read the story below:
Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.
If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.
Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
