Wellington residents 'sceptical' water meters will fix issues

From Morning Report, 6:34 am on 29 January 2024

The head of a Wellington residents group says people are sceptical the introduction of water meters will address the city's future water challenges.

Water meters are likely to figure large in Monday's discussions between Local Government Minister Simeon Brown and the mayors of Wellington City and Upper Hutt.

Wellington Mayor Tory Whanau supports the idea of introducing the meters.

But Wellington Residents' Coalition chair Warwick Taylor says residents are not keen on shouldering yet another bill.

Taylor spoke to Corin Dann.
