New report lists board achievements

As local elections loom, Rodney Local Board has produced a 44-page report outlining its achievements since its three-year term started in October 2016. The online document sets out how and where budgets have been spent in such areas as public transport; community empowerment; parks, sport and recreation; the environment; and the arts and culture.
Local Board chair Beth Houlbrooke said the three years had gone quickly and there never seemed to be enough time or money to invest in every community or address every need.
“The Local Board has, however, done its best to ensure that the broad needs of our communities have been addressed the length and breadth
of Rodney,” she said.
She added that the report was designed to keep residents and ratepayers informed about the Board's work and provide accountability to the community. A similar report was produced at the end of the previous Board term in 2016.
The cost of producing the report was met in-house by the Local Board services and communications departments, and there are no plans to print it. It can be found by going to aucklandcouncil.govt.nz and searching for ‘Rodney achievement report 2019'.
