Opinion: Rates levels alright here, says councillor
By Richard Walls
Does the Dunedin City Council have a recipe for increasing rates and debt, and are its elected officials either devious or incompetent – as some of the council’s critics suggest? Richard Walls answers some specific criticisms.
Mr Oaten departs from the script, however, when he says Dunedin Venues Ltd “is to be part of the DCHL (Dunedin City Holdings Ltd) group”. Indeed, he does so deliberately knowing full well from a direct discussion with Mr Athol Stephens, general manager, finance and corporate, as well as exchanges with me on the What If Stadium website, that DVL, like its sister company DVML (Dunedin Venues Management Ltd), is not part of the DCHL Group.
