It is appreciated most people find KCDC to be unresponsive to ratepayers needs and therefore ignore the elections process and making submissions as a waste of time.
Please consider going to the KCDC website and making a submission to their planning document. It isn't hard to do but does take a bit of time.
KCDC are using the document to help support their proposed 8.5% rates increase and to get the mandate to move into new areas such as investing in social housing and establishing a company outside of their current business. They also give the opportunity to give feedback on things like the Gateway project.
If enough people provide feedback then hopefully KCDC might take notice?
This week we feature a cat called Simba. Who belongs to Dean Cooper from Masterton.
"Simba is around 27 years old and although starting to loose weight, is still going strong!
