2018 Workload Huge for the Hamilton City Council

7th Feb 18

2017 provided some memorable moments for the Hamilton City Council and not all of them were good ones.  There was the shock around proposed rates increases, lengthy Council meetings, proposals for big ticket projects, social media faux pas and the unexpected passing of the East Ward Councillor, Phillip Yeung.

All indications point to a busy year ahead for our city’s Council, however so far this year, all appears quiet.

Issues set down for 2018 include:

  • Finalising proposed rates increases and changes to the rating system.

  • Providing more housing for Hamilton’s growing population will remain high on the agenda.  This includes the Council’s application for a $308m interest free loan from the Housing Infrastructure Fund provided by central Government.

  • Plans for the city itself which include a park for the central city, the Waikato Regional Theatre and a “town centre” for Rototuna including its own library.  Transport upgrades are also on the cards encompassing the proposed fuel tax and discussions around a commuter rail system.

  • A by election to secure Phillip Yeung’s successor for the East Ward.

  • Works around repairs on the city’s library and Waterworld are due to start shortly and both are expected to be completed later this year.

All of these goals of course are in addition to the usual business of the Hamilton City Council and taking care of the matters and issues that we need resolved for the city to continue to function on a day to day level.

This year is certainly going to be a busy year for the Council but also an exciting one … Bring on 2018!
