Council proposes postponing completion of the harmonisation of water supply rates until Year 4 of the 10 Year Plan. This is because of concerns about rating affordability for Te Kuiti ratepayers and because the future model for the delivery of water services is uncertain.
I agree with Council’s preferred option to postpone the harmonisation of water supply rates until Year 4 (2024/2025).
I would prefer that Council keeps the status quo and completes this work as planned in Year 1 (2021/2022), noting this will largely impact Te Kuiti ratepayers.
