City's finances on track

City's finances on track

29 November 2012

Hamilton’s finances are on track to meet targets set in its 10-Year Plan, with a $1.3 million operating deficit recorded for the first three months of the financial year, $2.2 million ahead of the budgeted deficit of $3.5 million.

The main reasons the Council is ahead of budget is due to having received funding from NZTA for the Ring Road (advance of $1.2m), an increase in water revenue of $200,000 (mainly from Fonterra) plus some projects being under budget or having received unbudgeted contributions from partners eg the Community Development Fund has so far received $223,000 for various projects.

The report was presented by Richard Briggs the Council’s new Chief Financial Officer to Council’s Finance and Monitoring Committee.

Mr Briggs presented the report in a new simpler format to ensure all Council budgeting and expenditure is accessible and understandable.

Overall the Council is in a sound financial position and is on track to deliver the budgeted results for this first year of the new 10-Year Plan.

A more comprehensive six monthly report will be presented to the Committee early next year.

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>
