Current Council Rates Survey Flawed - and Biased

Richard from Epsom

The current Council Rates Survey is Flawed and Biased. At a time of Covid, more jobless ratepayers, angst about Council salaries, general Council incompetence, money wasted on vanity and ego projects, it is an insult that Council wants more of your money.

The survey is at:

www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz...

The survey is seriously flawed in that it does not have an option of 'NO RATES INCREASES' and very biased (like so many other Council surveys) to direct ratepayers to a predertmined outcome that will allow Goff and his Councillors to proudly state that 'a majority support a rates increase'.

Here is the first question in the survey:
Which increase do you support?
-2.5 per cent average general rates increase
- 3.5 per cent average general rates increase
- I don't know

My advice - tick 'I don't know' - and then tell the Council in the supporting box that you DONT WANT A RATES INCREASE and why.

If you want - also go to the Council complaints and register the fact that the survey is Biased and Flawed.
