File No.: CP2019/08440

Purpose of the report

4.       Local boards are now considering local content for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 which includes a local board agreement, a message from the chairperson, local board advocacy, and a local fees and charges schedule for 2019/2020.

Horopaki

Context

6.       Local board plans are strategic documents that are developed every three years to set a direction for local boards. Local board plans influence and inform the Annual Budget 2019/2020 (and associated local board agreements) which outlines priorities, budgets and intended levels of service for each financial year. Auckland Council must have a local board agreement between the Governing Body and the local board, for each local board area.

7.       Local board nominees have had the opportunity to attend Finance and Performance Committee workshops on key topics, and provide local board views on the Annual Budget 2019/2020 to the Finance and Performance Committee.

8.       From 17 February to 17 March 2019, council consulted with the public on the Annual Budget 2019/2020. Two locally held events were held in the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area to engage with the community and seek feedback on both regional and local proposals.  Feedback was received through written, event and social media channels.

9.       A report analysing the feedback on local board priorities, as well as feedback from those living in the local board area related to the regional issues, was included as an attachment on the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board April business meeting agenda.

10.     Local boards considered this feedback, and then held discussions with the Finance and Performance Committee on 8 May 2019 on regional issues, community feedback and key local board initiatives and advocacy areas.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

11.     Both staff and the local board have reviewed the feedback received on Annual Budget 2019/2020 and local boards have received a report analysing the feedback. It is now recommended that local boards adopt local content for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 (Attachment A) including the Local Board Agreement 2019/2020, and a local fees and charges schedule for 2019/2020 (Attachment B).

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

12.     Local boards worked with council departments to develop their local board work programmes for 2019/2020 that will be adopted at June business meetings. The local board work programmes help inform the local board agreements.

13.     Local boards are requested to approve any advocacy initiatives for consideration by the Governing Body and inclusion (as an appendix) to the 2019/2020 Local Board Agreement. Local boards may also include advocacy to Council Controlled Organisation (CCOs).

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

14.     This report seeks local board adoption of its content for the Annual Budget 2019/2020 and other associated material, including the Local Board Agreement 2019/2020.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

15.     Many local board decisions are of importance to and impact on Māori. Local board agreements and the Annual Budget are important tools that enable and can demonstrate council’s responsiveness to Māori.

16.     Local board plans, which were developed in 2017 through engagement with the community including Māori, form the basis of local priorities. There is a need to continue to build relationships between local boards and iwi, and where relevant the wider Māori community.

17.     Of those who submitted to the Annual Budget 2019/2020 from the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board area 12 identified as Māori. These submissions were provided to the local board for consideration when finalising their local board agreement.

18.     Ongoing conversations will assist local boards and Māori to understand each other’s priorities and issues. This in turn can influence and encourage Māori participation in council’s decision-making processes.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

19.     The local board agreement includes the allocation of locally driven initiatives (LDI) funding and asset based services (ABS) funding to projects and services for the 2019/2020 financial year.

20.     LDI funding is discretionary funding allocated to local boards based on the Local Board Funding Policy that local boards can spend on local priorities that are important to their communities. Local boards can also utilise LDI funding to increase local levels of service if they wish to do so.

21.     Funding for asset based services (ABS) is allocated by the Governing Body to local boards based on current levels of service to run and maintain  local assets and services including parks, pools and recreation facilities, community facilities, and libraries.

22.     Local boards have the decision making and oversight responsibility in respect of local fees and charges within parameters set by the Governing Body. A local fees and charges schedule for Active Recreation, Community Venues for Hire (including Library rooms for hire) for 2019/2020 is adopted alongside the Local Board Agreement. The fees and charges have been formulated based on region-wide baseline service levels and revenue targets. Where fees and charges are amended by local board that results in lower revenue for Council, the shortfall in revenue will need to be made up by either allocating LDI funds or reducing expenditure on other services to balance overall budgets.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

23.     Decisions on the local content of the Annual Budget 2019/2020 including the Local Board Agreement 2019/2020 and a local fees and charges schedule for 2019/2020, are required by 7 June 2019 to ensure the Governing Body can adopt the Annual Budget 2019/2020 at its 20 June 2019 meeting.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

24.     The resolutions of this meeting will be reported to the Governing Body on 20 June 2019 when it meets to adopt the Annual Budget 2019/2020, including 21 local board agreements.

25.     Minor changes may need to be made to the attachments before the Annual Budget 2019/2020 is adopted, such as correction of any errors identified and minor wording changes. Staff therefore recommend that the local board delegates authority to the Chair to make final changes if necessary.

26.     Local board agreements set the priorities and budget envelopes for each financial year. Work programmes then detail the activities that will be delivered within those budget envelopes. Work programmes will be agreed between local boards and operational departments at business meetings in June 2019.
