No Funding Cut For New Clendon Library

Media Release
29 June 2004

No funding cut for new Clendon Library

Contrary to the report published in the Manukau Courier of Tuesday, 29 June, Manukau City councillors have not overturned their initial decision to build a new $3.8 million library for Clendon.

At last week's Council meeting, councillors approved that a sum of $2.45 million for the building and fit out of the new Clendon library be included in the 2004/05 Annual Plan. This is in addition to the sum of $1.35 million already included in the draft Annual Plan for the new Clendon library.

Councillors also approved for inclusion in the Long-term Council Community Plan $102,000 for operational costs for the new library for the 2005/06 year and $372,000 for operational costs and debt repayment for the 2006/07 year.

Officers are currently exploring options for the delivery of library services between the end of the current lease (31 December 2004) and when the new library opens.
