RATEPAYER ALERT

Lew from Hope

WAIMEA DAM
In October 2017 TDC told us this, “Our share of the dam’s capital cost would be $26.8 million.”
TDC's share of the project cost is now $100 million and it is highly likely to be more before the dam is finished. We say that the irrigation businesses which will use 85% or more of the water should be picking up their fair share of this. If you agree then come to the protest meeting.
8:30 am 1st April outside TDC HQ, Queen St, Richmond. And pass the message on to all your friends.
