Auckland Councillor on gaping budget hole

From Morning Report, 6:48 am on 27 April 2023

Auckland Council has a difficult decision to make about how to fill its gaping budget hole.

The council has released a summary of the record-breaking amount of feedback it received on its proposed budget, with 41,146, and 3,989 survey respondents.

Most people support selling at least some airport shares to boost revenue, but want fewer funding cuts.

Auckland councillor Richard Hills spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
