Rates, rates and oh rates
We all know the topic and we all know the passions the Rates topic provokes. Well now is the time to put your (Rates) money where your mouth is and have your say on the Auckland Council 2016-2017 Annual Plan (the Council annual Budget).
From Shape Auckland:
Annual Budget 2016/2017
Each year, all councils are required to set out their plans, service levels and budgets for the coming year.
Our 2016/2017 Annual Budget covers the second year of the current Long-term Plan, and contains $1.2 billion of investment in new assets, as well as $3.7 billion to pay for the day-today services the council provides.
The budget will also set the level of rates for 2016/2017.
This year’s Annual Budget consultation will focus on some key rating issues we want your feedback on. They are:
- The Uniform Annual General Charge
- The Interim Transport Levy
- Maori land rates
- Farm and lifestyle rates
We also want your feedback on the local board priorities for your local area.
This is your chance to help guide Auckland’s direction for 2016/2017 so we encourage you to get involved and have your say.
The consultation period has now been extended. You can provide us with feedback between 15 February and 4pm, 24 March 2016
