The Public Purse

23 Sep

I’m putting together a ‘public purse’ list in an attempt to create a more definitive Southland register of sorts.  A one stop shop for payments from public organisations – elected and/or appointed.  I’ll just keep putting them up and will accept suggestions for others that should be added.   Some don’t come under the ‘public purse’ possibly but might be interesting nonetheless.

No particular order I will put up fees you can take what ever you want from it.  I haven’t found ILT fees yet.

moneyInteresting to compare EIL director fees last year and again this year – 10.5% increase.  I’m sure they think they deserve it.  I’ll leave it at that for now…please leave your suggestions in the comments.

    Public Service????????????? If elected to council you should put together a list of local business people prepared to do two of three year terms on the directorates for free. I could forward several names of extremely able people. It could only be done on companies 100% owned by council. It is shameful that people want in excess of $2,000 for attending a meeting. In the normal commercial world directors are remunerated for adding value to shareholders but in the case of these companies owned by the public there are plenty of people happy to play their part and give back to the community.
    Over 16 years Vibrant Invercargill has had a board of extremely able people who have happily given their time for free. Retailers, business owners, architects are just a few. Obviously the idea of people giving their time in a voluntary basis has embarrassed some of the double dippers and Boniface has convinced them to wind it up and give Venture the funding. No freebies there. Or for that matter anything much to speak of.

    And when Boniface can make public comments such as ” I am the chairman of the Finance and Policy Committee and they will do as I say” you see how deep the rot has got within council. That was said to members of the Vibrant Board and there was also a senior council staff member present!

      I believe Boniface is truly getting worried. Nearly every candidate meeting he has stuffed something up

        That one thing on its own would get Invercargill moving again. Trouble is to many people never get to see those meetings and see the real people.

Got something to say?
