Rodney Councillor Greg Sayers has put together a survey seeking ratepayers views on the Government’s “Three Waters” proposal. The reform proposes amalgamating all of Auckland’s water services (drinking water, wastewater and stormwater) with the Far North District Council, Whangarei District Council and the Kaipara District Council to create a new regional corporation, which will take over running of all the water services.
Cr Sayers says there is an Auckland Council Governing Body Meeting on September 23 to discuss the issue, and it would be helpful to have some preliminary survey responses before then so he can present them to the Mayor. Though he says people will still have the opportunity to complete the survey after this date. It will likely remain open until Auckland Council has to give a definitive response on whether it wants to opt in or out of Three Waters.
