DCC lifts rates by 7%
By David Loughrey
Dunedin’s rates were finally set yesterday, with a 7% rise. Mayor Peter Chin told a short meeting for that purpose it was the end of a long process of “decisions, debate, deliberation and recommendation”.
The meeting also voted to proceed with a plan for changes to representation in the city, beginning a process to possibly put in place a new 11-councillor super ward, but not before another debate on the issue.
