The Council have indicated a preferred option for addressing this issue, including partial funding of the shortfall. Do you support this option?
As outlined, we are not putting enough money aside to replace our roads, pipes and pumps in the future. Council would like to fund this shortfall gradually over the next 10 years. Do you support this option?
As outlined, we want your input on a future direction for the South Canterbury Museum and addressing other issues with our cultural facilities. Council have included funding to either redevelop the existing museum building or build a new museum. Do you support this option?
