Southland District Council regarding the proposed roading changes

A council report said it would receive less funding under most of the proposed changes.

Council chief executive Dave Adamson said the council spent $26.3m on roading projects in the 2012-13 year, of which $13.3m came from the New Zealand Transport Agency.

“We believe, under the scheme, we will lose about $1.5m a year if we did the same amount of work as this year. We would have to make it up from rates.”

The $1.5m would equate to about a 4 per cent rate rise, he said.

Whereas Invercargill City Council are choosing public excluded

farIt will be interesting to see if SDC put their submission into PE once completed or is that just an ICC thing?
