Justice At Last for Hauraki Gulf Residents- ACT
Residents of the Hauraki Gulf will be delighted and relieved today to learn that the Auditor-General will be conducting an in-depth investigation into cases of alleged abuses of power by the Auckland City Council.
ACT MP Owen Jennings, who has championed the campaign by Gulf residents for an inquiry into the allegations, said he would be supplying the Auditor General with the cases he has received in support of an inquiry.
"I am also very pleased that the Local Government & Environment Select Committee will be working with the Auditor-General to ensure that all the issues raised by residents will be attended to in a sensitive and professional manner.
"I am very satisfied that the investigation is in capable hands and that the opportunity exists, at last, for justice to be done.
Owen Jennings is travelling to Waiheke Island tomorrow to discuss with residents how they can work with the Auditor-General in detail to get their cases resolved. Mr Jennings will also attend a public meeting on the City Council issue being held on Great Barrier Island on Friday.
