Council largesse extends

Manukau City Council has approved a 40% increase in Directors? fees for two of its Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs) Manukau Water and Tomorrow?s Manukau Properties.

The increased fees were approved by the Council Corporate Governance Committee behind closed doors earlier this month, but have only just become public.

People's Choice have demanded answers.

[quote]?Peoples Choice says it?s hard to understand why such large increases were recommended by Council officers. It?s not as if the business environment for these two monopolies has become any more difficult over the past twelve months. We?re calling on the Council to outline its reasons.?[/quote]
