The Dunedin City Council faces a double whammy of lost
revenue and community anger - at least from some sectors - if
it defers some or all of a list of major capital projects in
an effort to save money.
Three of the most expensive capital projects planned by the
Dunedin City Council, together costing tens of millions of
dollars, could be temporarily shelved in an effort to ease
the burden on ratepayers.
A multimillion-dollar budget for the redevelopment of Logan
Park will be carried over to the 2010-11 year as planning for
the project continues, Dunedin city councillors at
yesterday's annual plan hearing were told.
