Public meeting on council annual plan proposals

Public meeting on council annual plan proposals

Rotorua District Council (RDC) is giving local residents the opportunity to discuss proposals for the next financial year at a public meeting this week.

The meeting on the council’s 2014/15 draft annual plan is on Thursday (17 April) at 5pm at the council Civic Centre, and any interested Rotorua resident is welcome to attend.

The draft plan identifies council programmes and projects for the coming year, proposals to support Rotorua 2030 vision and goals, and budgets.

Rotorua mayor Steve Chadwick said she encourages local residents to share their views with council before submissions on the draft plan close on 2 May.

“The public meeting and the whole consultation process is an opportunity for the community to tell us if we remain on track with our detailed proposals for the coming financial year (2014/15) as set out in the draft annual plan.

“We’re even prepared to come along and meet with community groups to discuss our proposals and listen to their views, as community engagement is a critical component in developing our forwards plans.

“The council needs to know whether our proposals are backed by residents, so we’re urging Rotorua people to use the submission process to give us their views. Nothing is set in concrete yet as we want community feedback before we finalise our plan.”

The full 130 page draft annual plan and online submission forms are available on the RDC website rdc.govt.nz. Submission forms and summaries of the draft plan can also be picked up from the council Customer Centre, City Focus or Library.

Submissions on the council’s 2014/15 draft annual plan close on Friday 2 May.

Thursday’s public meeting on the 2014/15 draft annual plan is at 5pm at the council Civic Centre.

Gordon Campbell: On A Funeral In Asia, The Northland By-Election, And News Priorities

Supposedly, New Zealand’s destiny lies in Asia, and that was one of Foreign Minister Murray McCully’s rationales for his bungled reforms at MFAT. OK. So, if that’s the case why didn’t Prime Minister John Key – who was already in South Korea – stay in the region so that he could attend the state funeral on Sunday of Singapore’s founding leader Lee Kuan Yew?

Instead, Key returned to New Zealand to campaign in the Northland by-election, and Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae will represent this country in his place. Bad call. Key has put the domestic interests of his party ahead of New Zealand’s wider interests on the world stage. More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese. On the side, the Key government has also been using the security services to gauge the chances of Trade Minister Tim Groser landing the top job at the WTO... More>>
