Poll: Do you support a rates rise of 5 per cent in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

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.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comments used by Stuff.

Poll: Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.

Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.

The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
