A crack­ing start to 2018

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Your Local News -

What a busy start to 2018 it has been. Coun­cil are hav­ing weekly dis­cus­sions for the next 10 year plan of what our com­mu­nity is re­quired to do by gov­ern­ment, what our own re­quire­ments are and what our com­mu­nity wants to do and achieve - ver­sus what we can af­ford and how we pay for it. This is about pri­ori­tis­ing projects. Un­for­tu­nately we can't do ev­ery­thing so Coun­cil will have to agree on what are the best out­comes for our com­mu­nity think­ing big pic­ture.

Mayor He­len is keen to fo­cus on projects which cre­ate long term wealth for every­one. The more res­i­dents and new busi­nesses the Manawatū District can at­tract, ben­e­fits us all with more jobs, more ratepay­ers to spread the fund­ing bur­den and ul­ti­mately al­lows us to achieve more as a com­mu­nity.

The draft plan will be out for your feed­back in April.
