621 tell the council what they think

Auckland City Council has received 621 submissions on its Draft Annual Plan for the 2004 financial year.

The chairperson of the council’s Finance and Corporate Business Committee, Councillor Douglas Armstrong, welcomes the submissions which are now being analysed by council staff prior to their consideration by city councillors.

“I want to thank all the residents and ratepayers who made a submission for taking the opportunity to tell us what they think of our draft annual plan,” Councillor Armstrong says.

“The council actively promoted the availability of the draft annual plan on the council’s website and the public’s ability to submit online. I am delighted that 27 per cent of submissions (170) were received via the internet.

“The total number of submissions received is considerably less than last year. I believe this is due to the less controversial nature of this year’s draft annual plan.” One hundred and forty four submitters advised they wished to present their submission to the council in person. The public hearings will take place in the Town Hall from 9.30am to 7pm on 9 and 10 June 2003. The council has also scheduled public hearings from 9.30am to 12.15pm on 11 June 2003.
