Acknowledgement

 

Resolution number PPK/2020/31

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member G Hawkins:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      acknowledge the front-line and essential services workers who have selflessly put themselves at increased risk in hospitals, supermarkets, pharmacies, on our streets, on public transport, and across our community during the COVID-19 epidemic.

We thank the community as a whole for making personal sacrifices through self-isolation and staying in their “bubbles” during the alert level four lockdown.

Our thoughts go out to the families of those around the country who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19 and those currently in intensive care units.

We also acknowledge the significant impact Covid-19 has had on individual stress levels and the financial burdens many have faced as the result of reduced incomes, job losses and business closures. Many lives have been saved, in particular, the lives of grandparents and those with underlying health conditions, by the community acting as one and adhering to the lockdown rules.

We thank the community organisations that have mobilised as essential services to offer wrap around support to our most vulnerable communities.

Thank you all for your commitment to the people of Papakura.

Urgent Decision - Papakura Local Board input on the Water Services Regulatory Bill (Taumata Arowai)

 

Resolution number PPK/2020/44

MOVED by Chairperson B Catchpole, seconded by Member G Hawkins:  

That the Papakura Local Board:

a)      note the urgent decision of the Papakura Local Board which provided input into the Water Services Regulator Bill (Taumata Arowai) as follows:

That the Papakura Local Board:

 

a)            endorse the following Papakura Local Board input into the central government’s Water Services Regulator Bill (Taumata Arowai):

 

i)          While the Papakura Local Board support the provision of quality drinking water, the board question whether having a crown entity controlling water services would have made any difference to the Havelock North scenario or the collapsing of infrastructure in Wellington.

 

ii)         In the board’s view the issue for local authorities is the cost of infrastructure including renewals.  The smaller the local authority the more difficult it is to finance based on the smaller rating base.  The challenge of funding the infrastructure becomes prohibitive. 

 

iii)        The proposed crown entity is another regulatory layer that local authorities will have to comply with.

 

iv)        Where smaller local authorities struggle with infrastructure financing this entity could also assist with raising capital for projects, ie:  underwrite infrastructure projects. 

 

v)         The board is concerned that local authorities will loose control over the resource which is one of the core functions local authorities are responsible for.

 

vi)        Local authorities have the accountability back to the Community and it would be concerning if the crown entity did not have any direct accountability to the public. 

 

vii)       The Council-Controlled Organisation Auckland model hasn’t always been smooth sailing in terms of accountability.  Essentially the Council-Controlled Organisation model is once removed from consumer.  This becomes problematic when the Council-Controlled Organisation decides to increase costs at a higher than expected level.  Although it is acknowledged that the Statement of Intent negotiations generally cover this isssue.

 

viii)      The board believe the Watercare Services Council-Controlled Organisation does a wonderful job in the Auckland region and the board was very impressed with the work Watercare is doing in regard to research in wastewater and waste solids treatment.
