Invitation to hear Auckland’s draft Annual Plan
The Franklin Local Board would like to invite members of the Franklin community to two information and feedback sessions on Auckland Council’s draft Annual Plan 2016/2017.
These will be held on Tuesday, February 23, at the Pukekohe Town Hall from 6pm, and Friday, February 26, at the Waiuku Community Hall from 2pm.
The main issues Council is consulting on this year are:
• Fixed Rates Charges
• Interim Transport Levy
• Farm and Lifestyle Rates
• Maori Freehold Land Rates
At this session, Franklin residents will have an opportunity to hear what is proposed in the draft Plan for the coming year, and have a chance to voice your thoughts about these proposals. During the event the public will also find out how they can have their say during the public consultation period, which opened on Monday, February 15, and closes on Thursday, March 24, 2016.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
