A document outlining the Dunedin City Council’s $1.5billion 10-year plan will soon be arriving in residents’ letterboxes.
At a council meeting yesterday councillors voted to send out the plan consultation document to the public.
The document, which presents the information contained in the plan in plain English, will be delivered to every household.
The plan includes a proposed overall rates increase of 9.8% next year, and an average yearly rates rise of 5.68% a year for the following nine years.
The capital budget of $1.5billion over the next decade would mean council debt would reach $869million by 2031.
Cr Andrew Whiley said he hoped residents would take the time to read and understand the document, and if they had questions, to reach out to city councillors.
"It is about the future of their city," Cr Whiley said.
Public feedback will be sought from March 30 to April 29.
There will be a range of feedback activities and events held during that period.
