Gareith Stanley started this petition to PNCC Council

The PNCC 'nature calls' public submission process currently underway gives ratepayers options for waste water treatment plant upgrades in order to meet upcoming resource consent requirements.  All options proposed require substantial rates increases.

This petition fundamentally opposes rates increases to fund this essential service work.  Some ratepayers expect certain non-essential (beautification/social/special interest) projects to be deferred or cancelled before PNCC asks for rates increases to fund projects that we have no choice but to complete.  Our essential services must come before all else.

PNCC has a multitude of non-essential projects underway right now, and more planned for the near future.  These non-essential projects are not as important as our essential city waste water infrastructure.  These non-essential projects must be cancelled or deferred as they are being carried out with current rate payer funds at the expense of more critical projects.  Essential service projects such as 'nature calls' are the absolute priority and are to be funded using rate payer funds currently available. 

The expected course of action is:
1) Disallow any rates increase to fund this project
2) Provide rate payers with the works programme of all PNCC major capital projects
3) Obtain feedback from rate payers on which non-essential projects will be cancelled or deferred in order to fund the essential waste water project from rates available currently.

This petition is signed by PNCC ratepayers who do not agree to rates increases to fund the waste water project. 

We want our rates money to go towards ensuring our fundamental essential services are put above all else, and managed properly by our elected council.
