Small businesses are vital to the recovery of our economy.

During the Covid-19 restrictions, business owners have shown initiative, hard work and resilience to keep afloat.

But many have been hit hard.

Lack of clarity about just how heavy the toll of the restrictions have been on individual businesses and their ability to quickly rebound adds to the uncertainty of the national economic recovery.

Therefore, Prosper is launching a survey targeted at finding out the scale of Covid-19's impact.

You can take that survey right now – it will only take a few minutes.

Poll: Would you prefer costs for services and public facilities (like libraries and pools) to go up, or rates bills to go up?

Pursuing a 0 per cent rates increase will have an "enormous impact" on the Christchurch community, city councillors warn.

A planned $34 million swimming pool and library development in Hornby could be delayed, the cost of a swim could go up and so could library charges, community grants could get the chop, and the New Brighton hot salt water pools could remain closed — everything is being considered to save money, but nothing is likely to be decided without another round of community consultation.

So what do you think? Would you want to pay more for services and public facilities, or would you prefer to have a higher rates bill? Or do you think there's any other way the council should save money? Read more here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

I note the Govt. have released details of this bill which will be voted on with a YES /NO answer referendum when the next General Election is held. I am wondering what others think about these details and have you considered how you will vote?
Personally I believe they have made so many rules, regulations, and stipulations they will find difficult to police and in doing so it will be very costly.
Whereas the idea has theoretical changes I believe the reality will be totally different. There are just so many holes which can be taken advantage of and frankly I believe so many MPS involved are still wet behind their ears.
