On 4 June we posted a comment by Cr Cootes of Otaki made on Facebook justifying the increase in KCDC staff by new central government requirements of councils.

Cr Cootes criticised us for doing this, so we invited him to write an article in response.

He didn’t, so Salima Padamsey sent an OIA to the council:

“Does KCDC have the expertise in house to manage these new Central Government requirements?

“In addition, could you please provide the estimated cost of each requirement?”

Tenei ko te urupare a te Tumuaki o te Kaunihera.
