Resolution number MR/2021/42

MOVED by Member K Penney, seconded by Member R McLean:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      receive the report on proposed variations to the 2018 Regional Fuel Tax scheme

b)      provide the following feedback on the proposed variation to the 2018 Regional Fuel Tax scheme:

i)          the board notes that there are no changes proposed to the rate of the Regional Fuel Tax, the period of the scheme or the area subject to the scheme, and that there are no additional projects proposed as part of the variation to the scheme

ii)         we support the proposed variation to the scheme to:

A)        reflect changes in scope in the descriptions of projects, identified initiatives within them, and projected benefits

B)        reflect the level of projected total expenditure and indicative RFT contribution to each project where new funding has become available or where project costings have been updated

C)        reflect changes to the timing of projects following decisions made through the development of the draft RLTP

Draft Statement of Expectations for Council-controlled Organisations

 

Resolution number MR/2021/43

MOVED by Member A Candy, seconded by Member K Penney:  

That the Manurewa Local Board:

a)      provide the following feedback on the draft Statement of Expectations, prepared in accordance with s64B of the Local Government Act 2002

i)          the board supports the preparation of a Statement of Expectations (SOE) for CCOs

ii)         we note that the SOE is intended to be part of a wider framework of accountability for CCOs, along with the CCO Accountability Policy, the CCO Governance Manual, and the Statements of Expectations and Intent for each CCO

iii)       the Independent Panel on the Review of Council Controlled Organisations in 2020 recommended that the SOE should set out:

·           how each CCO should conduct relations with the governing body, local boards, Māori entities and the public

·           the council’s expectations of individual CCOs as well as of CCOs generally

·           the extent to which the council expects CCOs to consult it when developing significant plans or strategies

·           the council’s expectations about CCO chief executives’ salaries and tenure

iv)       while the draft SOE generally sets out the provision recommended by the Independent Panel, it does not include expectations of individual CCOs. We support the recommendation of the Independent Panel that these should form part of the SOE

v)         we support the draft SOE’s acknowledgement that ‘local boards are not a ‘stakeholder’, but an integral part of the council’s governance system’ and that ‘local boards will be involved as governors (not stakeholders) when the decision impacts on their local governance role or has high community interest in their local community’

vi)       more detail is needed in the draft SOE regarding how CCOs should give meaningful effect to the local governance role of local boards beyond the requirements to ‘build and maintain good relationships’ and ‘consult with local boards genuinely and early’

vii)      the draft SOE should include reference to CCOs working to deliver strategies and key activities from local board plans, alongside the existing references to the Auckland Plan and the Long-term Plan

viii)     we acknowledge the need to implement the draft SOE alongside the revisions to the CCO Accountability Policy currently being consulted on as part of the Long-term Plan. However, we believe that the process and timeframe for local boards to provide input into the draft SOE has not been adequate and does not meet the board’s expectations regarding having the opportunity to provide meaningful and considered views

ix)       further revisions of the SOE and the CCO Governance Manual to give effect to the recommendations of the Independent Panel should use a process that allows meaningful and considered input from local boards.
