What are your thoughts on the rates reduction?

Kelley Tantau Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Hi neighbours! Thames-Coromandel District Council this week announced that their proposed rates increase of 9.98 per cent was looking to reduce to around 4.98 per cent for the next financial year (2020/21).
Council said it managed to reduce capital and operational spending, largely due to Covid-19.
What are your thoughts on the cut? Are you pleased rates have been reduced? What would you like to see your rates spent on? We would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to post them in the comments below!

Use the money however you like, while the flexible loan means regular payments aren’t required and you can repay all or some of the loan at any time.
