CAN CITIZENS TRUST DUNEDIN CITY COUNCIL ???

“It’s a major decision for the council. It involves a big chunk of the operation, not only in monetary terms but in staff terms as well, and we want to make sure we get it right.” -Cr Andrew Noone

DCC prepares to unveil water plan
By Chris Morris

Options included the creation of a council-controlled organisation (CCO) to manage the network, as well as a bid late last year by another council company, Delta, to provide the council’s water services instead.

Some councillors remained opposed, with a block of four – Crs Fliss Butcher, Jinty MacTavish, Teresa Stevenson and Kate Wilson – trying unsuccessfully to block the CCO proposal from proceeding.
