A majority of Environment Canterbury councillors support increasing their rates by up to 24.5 per cent.
Only four of 14 councillors directly criticised the proposed change at a meeting on Thursday, while most others said the budget is transformational and shows the council is responding to the demands of the community.
How out of touch of struggling families. What sort of moron labels a 25% increase in rates as transformational?
How many families have have their incomes rise 25%?
