Airport Company wants another $20M !

Peter from New Plymouth

I was one of those invisible ratepayers who made submissions to the NPDC about our new $30M airport.

It was neither needed nor warranted in my opinion, our Mayor on the other hand opined that " it would keep the tills ringing" . So hows that going Neil?

While we were assured that it would not ever be a burden on the ratepayer, no sir not ever, it was entirely predictable that it would be given the councils, any councils, history of dabbling in commerce. It was just a matter of when and how!

And now they want another $20 million or so. Outrageous.
Its time the council was called to account and some resignations tendered . I'll hold my breath.
