The June Meeting was held in our new venue of Legacy Gardens. The seats were very comfortable, a good sound system and very informative presentation by Jordan Williams , Executive Director of The Taxpayers Union. 







The TaxpayersUnion is a grassroots activist group, dedicated to being the voice for Kiwi taxpayers. We stand for value for money for government spending. Our mission -- Lower  Taxes, Less Waste, More Transparency.  We are a lobby group, not a think tank.  See . In particular look up the Ratepayers Report to see the ranking of Tauranga City Council in many metrics. Quick Tip -- use the metro button to see TCC results quicker.  TCC numbers do not include a component for rubbish and waste pickups, included in other centre's numbers.

The TCC was warned years ago that as we only had one road in and one road out access into and out of Papamoa East, it would be isolated due to an event like a tsunami, earthquake, flooding etc Not only were some of the new subdivisions flooded but also Papamoa Beach Road was awash on Sunday night which was a cause for concern to all Papamoa East residents particularly in the event of an emergency. Te Okuroa Drive might well be making progress but as a two lane road it will be inadequate and residents want action now on upgrading Papamoa Beach Road, four laning of Te Okuroa Drive and construction of the Papamoa East Interchange.

Museum Decision say no.

Its good to see commonsense has prevailed. Let’s sort the infrastructure out and keep rates rises to a minimum before we commit to projects we can ill afford.

The PRRA is looking forward to working with the new CEO of Tauranga City Council, hoping he will take a close look at Council spending, control rates rises and take an interest in the growth and infrastructural development for Papamoa, along with the upgrade of Papamoa Beach Road, which has been sadly lacking for years.

Kelvin Clout - Deputy Mayor, Tauranga City addressing another ‘standing room only’ meeting at the  meeting tonight. I think he’s the best Deputy Mayor we’ve had in the last four years.






Thank you to those who attended tonight’s PRRA meeting which proved to be informative as well as generating good debate with Councillors Clout, Morris and Robson. Our thanks to them for addressing community concerns and John Cruikshank from Kleana Bins for addressing the issues arising from the Councils proposed changes to rubbish collection.

In future though, if members wish to raise any matters with Councillors, could they first email Wayne to so that they can be briefed beforehand. We would prefer to be more focussed on matters at hand during meeting time.
