Need to consider the impact on employees who work in the CBD but cannot afford to pay for parking. This includes a number of employees who work in the Municipal Building for Hamilton City Council. This will be less of an issue for those who now work remotely although a number of people don't have that option given the nature of their roles or their personal circumstances.
We’re proposing to balance our books in 2024/25 and reset our debt-to-revenue ratio to 300% for 2021/22 then decreasing by 5% each year until 2025/26 where we will remain at 280% from 2026/27 to 2030/31. Rates are proposed to increase by an average of 8.9% in 2021/22 and 4.9% annually until 2030/31.
We have lots of other projects included in our Long-Term Plan. We want to hear you views on any of them.
