Watch Live: Dunedin City Council annual plan deliberations

Lower rates rises, revised budgets and increased borrowing will be discussed by councillors today as part of the Dunedin City Council annual plan deliberations

In a report to the council last month Mayor Aaron Hawkins said there would need to be a raft of measures in response to the effects of Covid-19, including asking council staff to prepare revised annual plan budgets.

Deliberations on Dunedin City Council’s draft 2020-21 annual plan are scheduled to run today and Friday if needed.

Full comprehensive coverage of the deliberations will be available in tomorrow's Otago Daily Times and on the ODT website.
