Christchurch rates will go up by 54 per cent over the next 10 years, prompting one city councillor to liken his colleagues to "drunken sailors at a spending orgy".
Five councillors – James Gough, Sam MacDonald, Aaron Keown, Phil Mauger and Catherine Chu – voted against the long-term plan (LTP), and the rates increase saying they believed the council did not go anywhere near far enough to cut its costs.
However, other councillors and mayor Lianne Dalziel said they believed the council had struck the right balance.
What do you think? Let us know below.
We're looking into how some common claims about NZ stack up and would be interested in your thoughts on whether New Regent Street in Christchurch deserves its title of 'NZ's most beautiful street'. Do you think it is the best-looking street in the country? Or is there another street you think is more beautiful? Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you do not want it included in an article. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
