Three Waters: Whanganui District Council Would Get $24m
Whanganui mayor Hamish McDouall said a first look at the package suggests Whanganui would be better off under the Government's Three Waters reforms.
"You'd be taking away our wastewater, stormwater and drinking water debt – that transfers with the asset – but without the asset base that limits our ability to borrow and a bunch of other things.
"Somewhere around $24 million under the current provisions will be going to the wellbeings and will be very much about building up that asset base again....."
