Getting people involved in developing the next long-term plan is on the radar for Thames Coromandel Mayor Len Salt.
He wants input into setting the future priorities for the local council and how rates funding is to be spent.
This from Mayor Len as council considers its Long-Term Plan. And the mayor is looking for a new approach.
In response to CFM, the mayor said the district had to look at opportunities which takes the burden off the ratepayers, and then provides the likes of amenities in a way that hasn’t been done before.
He said council had determined roading as a priority issue, it being an imperative as everything undertaken by council, was dependant on people being able to get to where they need to be or want to go.
“So much ties back into state highways and council roading infrastructure,” said Len including the likes of work on shoreline management.
