Council’s 10 YEAR PLAN now finalised
The Council’s plan showing what it intends to do over the 10 year period 2015 – 2025 to make Palmerston North an even greater place to live has now been published.
Based on community input, the Council asked the public for submissions around the balance between our services and their cost in terms of rates and debt? The submissions generally said Council does have the right balance and supported Council’s approach of providing day to day services, renewing its infrastructure so that the infrastructure does not fail, and implementing new projects that improve the City. The document also explains how your rates are determined out to the 2024/25 year and gives a clear picture of exactly what proportion of your rates are spent on, from arts and culture through to roading and parks. Every person who made a submission to the 10 Year Plan will get a personalised letter, outlining Council’s responses to the issues they have raised. If you would like to read the 10 Year Plan copies can be obtained from the Library, the Council’s website, www.pncc.govt.nz or by calling the Customer Service Centre.
