Concerned ratepayers of Buller offer assistance.
Are you in favour or against the proposal for a Capital Value Rating model for Buller? Have your say!
Early feedback suggests that the proposed capital value rating model is unpopular with many ratepayers in the region and it raises a number of issues:
Is a one size fits all approach to commercial and residential (regardless of location) fair and reasonable?
Should our Council be more focussed on delivery of core services and cost control?
Is the value of your home indicative of your ability to pay more?
Or perhaps you love the direction this is all heading in…
Regardless of which side of the fence you sit, the proposed rates overhaul is a critical issue which will impact on many residents, businesses and our economic growth for years to come. All Buller ratepayers are encouraged to have their say.
A group of concerned ratepayers are offering to support the consultation process by helping any Buller ratepayers with their online or written submission.
A meeting will be held on Tuesday, 5 December at 7pm at the Market Cross Community Group building (RSA).
