I receive nothing for my rates usually followed by I live on a gravel road! I get my water of the roof and provide my own septc tank. I guess what amazes me even more is that the person usually saying this actually believes it! So lets start with the obvious: We have 2530km of roading of which 1682 is gravel. These roads include over 800 bridges, thousands of kilometres of pipes, culverts and road advisory signs - research shows the cost of maintaining this network can be anything up to 30% of the Councils entre budget. The rural porton is the biggest user of this network. Whilst your road may be gravel you dont live in isolaton. It is the entre network that provides for your services and delivers you to work or town. It is the transport route for your friends and family and delivers your kids to school. When you arrive at your destnaton you will no doubt park in one of the many Council owned and maintained carparks and walk on a public footpath with public street lightng installed for your comfort and safety. Your town centre will have been designed and built not only for commerce but as a place for social engagement and enjoyment. Opportunites for alfresco dining and access to services have been provided. The water you buy in the summer when your tank runs dry and the sewer your septc is empted into are required to be available and operatonal even if you use them only occasionally. These have historically been funded by targeted rates and untl now have been provided and paid for only by those connected to the service. The refuse and recycling you put at your gate or deliver to a transfer staton all need to be processed and delivered to a landfll or processing facility, ofen out of the district. You or your children will no doubt play sport or recreate on any one of hundreds of facilites Council provides from swimming pools to rugby felds. Or it may be a more passive pursuit like the arts, libraries, community centres, parks and reserves. It may be that you are a regular user of maritme facilites such as wharves, boat launching ramps or jetes and summer fun at the beach is supported by some beach grooming, public toilets and liter bins. We also design and provide for road safety and public educaton and In the event that it all goes pear shaped Council provide rural fre and civil defence, animal control and public health. This is just a snap shot of the some services we provide! So take your blinkers oﬀ and look around Rates are far more than the services we receive at our gate rates are an investment in your district and your community. with FNDC Councillor Ann Court T O PIX Paid Opinion Piece Private Mammograms now available in Kerikeri.

The Te Hiku and Bay of Islands/Whangaroa Community Boards gave out grants totalling $10,295 to four groups at their meetings this month. The Far North Safer Community Council was the biggest winner re- ceiving a $5000 grant from the Te Hiku Board for its Street Maytz pro- gramme. The council will use the money to document tagging on buildings in Kaitaia s central busi- ness area for crime detection purposes. Youths and adults serving community ser- vice sentences will then remove or paint over the graffiti. The board also gave $1200 to the Mangonui Heritage Trail Manage- ment Committee which is updating and reprint- ing 5000 copies of a guide to the trail at a cost of $1700. The trail links historic sites in Mangonui and is mentioned in the Lonely Planet guide to New Zea- land. The committee plans to seek the remaining $500 from Mangonui businesses. The Floral Art Society of Northland received $300 from the board towards $1736 costs of holding a Designer of the Year show at the Christian Centre in Mangonui. The Bay of Islands/ Whangaroa Community Board approved a $3795 grant application from the Towai Cemetery Committee. The com- mittee will use the grant to fund a 12-month mow- ing programme. Puhoi toll kiosk gone The NZ Transport Agency advises drivers using the Northern Gate- way Toll Road on State Highway 1 north of Auckland that the remaining manual pay- ment kiosk at Puhoi was destroyed overnight on Thursday. So there is a restricted service available for drivers wanting to pay their tolls by cash. Police have been noti- fied about the incident, which appears to be an attempted theft. The other machine at the isolated rural site was destroyed last month during a similar attack. The cash payment site for southbound motorists at Puhoi has now been closed indefinitely. The NZTA is assessing options for security arrangements and re- placement of machines at the site. Three manual pay- ment kiosks are still operating for northbound drivers at the BP service centre alongside SH1 at Silverdale. The NZTA reminds drivers that tolls remain payable on the road. Drivers can pay for single or multiple trips in advance or up to five days after their journey either online at www.toll road.govt.nz or by phone at 0800-40-20-20.
