Dog fees too high

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

I whole­heart­edly agree with Ta­nia Bur­ton’s let­ter (July 16) about dog regis­tra­tion fees be­ing too high in Porirua.

The fig­ures she quoted, com­par­ing Porirua to Master­ton, Manawatu, Christchurch and even Auck­land, were amaz­ing. Fancy Porirua charg­ing nearly dou­ble what Christchurch does to have a dog reg­is­tered!

Surely this is an area in which Porirua City Coun­cil could have an­other look at things and per­haps trim the regis­tra­tion fee back by up to $50.

Fair’s fair. We don’t mind pay­ing to have our dogs reg­is­tered, but it should not be a case of dog own­ers be­ing ripped off by their lo­cal coun­cil.
