Ef­fi­ciency mat­ters

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

Scrap the city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion (leave it to the pri­vate sec­tor), sell land and build­ings the coun­cil al­ready owns, scrap the new head of­fice and greatly im­prove head of­fice ef­fi­ciency (flat­ter struc­ture, fewer man­agers, core busi­nesses only).

With the dol­lars saved, dou­ble in­vest­ment in wastew­a­ter, water, stormwa­ter and road­ing.

And freeze rates in 2012/13 at last year’s lev­els and for the re­main­ing decade, in­crease them at only half the pro­jected rate of in­fla­tion.

This will at­tract and keep peo­ple and busi­nesses in Porirua.

AN­DREW WELLUM, Cam­borne
