Dunedin resident’s often complain at the very high cost of taking rubbish to the dump.
They are even more unhappy after it has been reported that the Council plans to make a $1.5 million profit from landfills.
Lee Vandervis comments:
it was an ‘underhand way of charging some Dunedin residents higher rates. We should really just charge what the service costs and, if we are charging that much more, I believe that is not appropriate. It is a way of subsidising rates and making the rates look as though they are less, but that’s not what we should be about
It is hard to disagree.
