2018-28 Long Term Plan

We have a bit of a dilemma. The cost of providing the things we all need (drinking water, wastewater, maintaining roads) is going up. The rates and fees we currently collect aren’t enough to pay for everything. We know it’s already a stretch for many to pay. If we do all the things we’re proposing, rates (excluding water rates) will go up an average of 4.4% per year over the next ten years, but it will be higher in the next couple of years. The increase in the first year will be 6.5%.

Let us know what you think about our plans – visit https://weneedtotalk.hauraki-dc.govt.nz to have your say on the next ten years.

We’re receiving feedback until 30 April 2018, with opportunities to speak to our councillors on 16 and 17 May 2018. We’ll keep you updated on an decisions made following the feedback process. In the meantime, read more or have your say by clicking the road sign and starting your journey.
