Velo­drome con­sul­ta­tion

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

Do peo­ple of Mata­mata know that the Waikato Re­gional Coun­cil is sup­posed to be con­sult­ing them to find out what they think about pay­ing for a velo­drome to be built on pri­vate land at St Peters School, Cam­bridge?

Ratepay­ers need to know that if the coun­cil agrees to fi­nance this ven­ture, it will mean that all ratepay­ers will be pay­ing for it for 20 years and that this spe­cial con­sul­ta­tion is nec­es­sary be­cause the Home of Cy­cling has not gone through the cor­rect chan­nels to re­quest money for their ven­ture. Ratepay­ers are there­fore foot­ing the bill for the spe­cial con­sul­ta­tion that is now re­quired be­fore this pro­posal can be con­sid­ered or agreed to. The Home of Cy­cling is pulling out all stops to en­sure that its ven­ture is suc­cess­ful, even to the ex­tent of get­ting chil­dren to sub­mit in their favour. Ratepay­ers also need to have their point of view heard. They can do this by go­ing to the coun­cil’s web­site and mak­ing a sub­mis­sion http:/ /www.waika­tore­gion.govt.nz
