Katrina Winn started this petition to Waitomo District Council (CEO)

PETITION SUMMARY

Many small and large businesses business’s in the  Waitomo region have been decimated. Jobs have been lost and continue to be. Many residents have had their salaries reduced for up to two months. Household incomes have dropped, halved or ceased altogether. The local economy and the people who reside within it will take at least a year to recover - probably longer due to recession.

All businesses Nationwide are having to reconsider their 20/21 budgets and most are having to cut their wish list to needs expenditure only. Households are doing the same. Council representatives who serve the people should be equally prudent.

Acknowledge the impact of this Covid-19 on your community. Sort the wants from the needs. Concentrate on working with council officers to deliver operational efficiencies. Deliver a 20/21 rates freeze back to the people who pay them. This is not a time to spend more than necessary.
