Rotorua Daily Post Reports on LTP Consultation Sewerage Meeting

From the Post:

Lakeside homeowners are furious about a “horrendous blowout” as they face paying up to about $88,000 per property to be connected to a sewerage scheme – up from $14,000 a few years ago.

Accusations of project mismanagement and lies were levelled at Rotorua Lakes Council during a fiery community meeting on Monday evening.

Through interruptions, a council manager maintained no final price had been provided for the East Rotoiti Rotomā Sewerage Scheme and cost increases were due to inflation, delays and resource consent compliance.

There was standing room only as about 200 people filed into the Rotoiti Sports Club.
