The Herald reports:
At last year’s local body elections, he promoted Manukau’s policy of a fixed charge for wastewater, saying adopting the Auckland City system of user pays would lead to increases of $1000 a year for some households.
Mr Brown has not modelled Manukau’s wastewater system of a fixed charge for households and a fixed plus metered charge for business.
Instead, he is proposing part-fixed and part-metered charges for households and businesses.
Yesterday, Mr Brown said he believed during the election campaign that the fixed charge was the fairer way to go, but now as mayor for all of Auckland it had become evident to him that a part-fixed, part-user charge was the fairest system.
To be consistent, I now expect Phil Goff to denounce Len Brown as a liar.Tags: Len Brown, Phil Goff
