Dialogue before decisions: Cull
By David Loughrey
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says while he will not be introducing ”radical” changes to consultation, he wants the council to get more well-informed input before issues get to the decision stage.
The following list in no way alludes to all of the DCC consultation processes undertaken in 2010. Residents might well be overwhelmed by ongoing ‘consultation’ across the raft of issues and programmes led by the Council – how much time and thinking should members of the public realistically volunteer to city hall? Should the Council streamline the nature of its business and involvements for good governance and cost saving? Maybe radical change is needed, Mayor Cull. The more fresh air, the better.
