DCC budget proposal
Next week the Dunedin City Council will be meeting to discuss budget proposals for the 2012-2013 Annual Plan. Mayor Dave Cull says it’s not just the stadium which has created current Council debt, but a number of other issues, as well.
Well, Mayor Cull would say that. However, the stadium project has been the one to expose the council to public scrutiny and awareness of a decade of mismanagement of ratepayer funds. Such that the debt per Dunedin ratepayer is now about six times the national average. As other commentators are demanding, a full independent forensic financial investigation into DCC, DCHL, DVML, DVL and CST is required.
