A report on under-fire Dunedin City Council-owned companies Delta and Aurora is expected to be made public by Monday.

Mayor Dave Cull said he hoped the report could be released before that day, following a non-public council discussion on the issue that lasted well over an hour yesterday.

Dunedin City Holdings Ltd director Keith Cooper faced a grilling from councillors when he gave them a ''progress report'' on an investigation by consultant Deloitte into the companies.

Over the past few weeks, it has been revealed infrastructure company Delta and lines company Aurora have not maintained electricity infrastructure, leaving thousands of power poles compromised and potentially dangerous.

Deloitte was brought in to investigate.

Mr Cull said after the meeting councillors ''asked a lot of questions''. He was comfortable after what he had heard the report was headed in the right direction.

Asked when the public would see the report, he said ''my hope is it will be released by Monday''.
