The Strath Taieri Community Board submission on the Dunedin
City Council's 2014-15 draft annual plan calls for
maintenance levels in the district to remain the same and for
a top-up in funding for the Middlemarch Pool, board chairman
Barry Williams said.
The Middlemarch pool needed a ''slight increase'' in funding
to cover inflation and the board was concerned about the lack
of maintenance on rural roads, Mr Williams said.
Although the board realised there was a lack of funding
available for capital work on rural roads, the maintenance
work, such as weed spraying, needed to be completed, so
funding should not ''drop back any'', Mr Williams said.
