GET REAL WITH RATES

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

I agree fully with the views ex­pressed by Martin Egan ( Tri­bune, July 13). PNCC has to con­trol its spend­ing. A good ex­am­ple is the time, ef­fort and money spent on road works in King St (re­sult­ing in re­duced car park­ing) and the round­about at the Al­bert St and Fer­gu­son St junc­tion. To me it seems as though the coun­cil was mak­ing sure its un­spent bud­get is fully spent be­fore the year’s end. You don’t have to make sure you spend all your road­ing bud­get willy nilly ... be a more re­spon­si­ble, fru­gal and con­sci­en­tious rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the ratepay­ers who elected you. As Martin pointed out a large num­ber of your ratepay­ers live on very limited in­comes.
