WELLINGTON CITY ANNUAL PLAN 2011
Nearly $17m spent on outsourcing work.
Council has 1,500 employees.
$16,745,526m spent on legal advice, consultants and general contracting
I has asked for a breakdown of Council spending on legal advice , consultants and general contracting.
With the prospect of a rate increase that will be difficult for many ratepayers to meet, a review of Council spending should be part of the funding review that is currently being put to the Amenities and Funding Working Party. Making the above figures public, together with salaries of Council management, should give Councillors a broader understanding when it comes to finalising the Annual Plan . So far we have looked at increasing fees and putting up rates but was that good enough in difficult financial times?
