Waipā’s proposed rates rises for 2019/20 are now online.

Waipa District Council is proposing a 3.7% average rates rise, the same as they said in their 10-Year Plan.

The draft Annual Plan shows Council is largely on track to deliver what they said they would in the 10-Year Plan. But there are some proposed changes, including a new recycling service and a change to the sport and recreation centre catchment areas for Pirongia and Kaipaki and a new catchment area for Ohaupō to fund a purpose-built facility.

Waipā property owners are able to see exactly how the proposed rates rise could impact them, by checking their property via Council’s online rates calculator​.

The proposed rates rise is detailed in the Council’s 2019/20 draft Annual Plan which includes Council’s budget for the next financial year. The draft Plan marks year two of a decade-long plan adopted by Council last June.

The 2019/20 draft Annual Plan summary, full document and feedback form is available at waipadc.govt.nz/haveyoursay and in Council offices and libraries. Any feedback must be received by 5pm, 8 April 2019.
