Hey neighbours,

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

We pay for water supply and some form of sewage fee to the 1 and only water company in Auckland (a monopoly if you ask me) and yet i dont see any infrastructure growth towards our water supply given the city is growing each day. What frustrate me is, the only water company in Auckland is putting a Manatory restrictions to our usage of water. I understand and do conserve water, but i felt they are finding ways to take care of its stakeholders and shareholders and not the customer that dont have a choice to get mains water from them. Yes i can buy water from a company that delivers water to your door and fill up your tank, however thats defeating the purpose, because i need council consent to put a massive water tank on my property.
I might be wrong, and happy to be educated or just have a neighbourly banter on the issue.
