started this petition to
Associate Minister of Local Government
are afoot to have the term of the appointed Commissioners extended beyond the
set date of October 2015.
appears to be an effort to create a platform towards amalgamation of the whole
of Northland into a single Local Authority.
the parlous state of Kaipara's finances and the stubborn refusal of
Commissioners to listen to ratepayers and residents, amalgamation can only be
detrimental to Kaipara's best interests and would likely result in those who
created this mess escaping scot free. We want the minister to:
(a) Ignore requests for extension of term of the Commissioners
(b) Be open on discussions regarding reorganisation of local government in Northland
