I am asking the 10 councillors to have a representation review, for $30,000, on commissioning a Tokoroa Community Board to properly survey the desires of the wider community for its wishes to elect its own members, in Tokoroa, for this board, with a mixture of youth (up to 35 years old) and longstanding urban folk. That is selfdetermination.
The customer satisfaction review is no special consultative procedure Mr Hobbs. A slippery slope, hiding appalling expenditures in the past decade and getting worse.
Hobbs’ comments demand a reply. The CEO of South Waikato District Council wrote (SWN October 22), ‘‘ . . . the council adopted the policy without consultation; saving it and the ratepayer the cost of a consultation process on an issue we believe we already have a strong steer on.’’ You insult me! What return are we getting from the million dollars SWIF fund spent on Lake Moananui with its 40 per cent budget blowout and the lake is now shallower than when we started?
Give me democracy! Lower swimming pool prices by greater occupancy is your council task.
And another task well completed, led by Cr Tua, thank you for the free internet in the libraries and no thanks to Cr Van Rojien for voting against free internet in the libraries over the past three terms.
Let’s hear from the Tokoroa councillors now.
R Young, Tokoroa
