Christchurch City Council, on Thursday, 30 June 2005, finalised its Annual Plan for the 2005/06 year.
The plan, for the 12 months from 1 July 2005, follows closely the commitments made in last year’s 2004-14 Long-Term Council Community Plan. The exception is the transfer of the operation and management of the Council’s refuse stations to the Recovered Materials Foundation, with no change in the level of service. This was publicly consulted on during October last year.
To maintain the levels of service set out in that long-term plan, the 2005/06 Plan requires an increase in the total rates take of 3.49 per cent.
It means an average city residence, worth a little under $260,000, will attract a rates bill of $1080 - about $21 a week.
The final annual plan and a summary of the annual plan is available from Council service centres and libraries and online here.
