Kellie Smith started this petition to Government and Tauranga City council

Tauranga City Council has started consulting on its budget and work plans for the year beginning July 1.
The draft Annual Plan 2020/21 comes at a time of social and economic upheaval, and the council is seeking public feedback to help guide the city through its challenges.
The council had initially proposed a 12.6 per cent average rates rise to build infrastructure for our growing city, says a council spokesperson.

“This has been trimmed back to 7.6 per cent to ease the financial pressure on ratepayers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The budget still allows for investment in much-needed infrastructure, providing a platform for our city to recover once the crisis has passed.
“The council intends to be flexible to the changing needs of the community, and public submissions will help guide any further changes to the plan.”
Key proposals for this year include:
• An overall average rates increase of 7.6 per cent. This would increase rates by $2.28 a week for the median residential ratepayer and $12.13 a week for the median commercial ratepayer.

 

Please sign and stop this madness as the city is on its knees already.
