The much-loved wharf is currently closed after five piles were damaged in recent earthquakes.
Mayor Campbell Barry says the wharf is clearly in poor condition and the council wants to know what the public think about its future.
The council has budgeted $8m for repairs in 2032. It is clear, however, that the work needs to be done before then.
The council is expecting a new report soon on what the options are.
Former city councillor and council critic Max Shierlaw has already called for an “honest” debate on the future of the wharf.
“The Petone wharf is a luxury that no longer can be afforded or justified.”
