That $8 million of ratepayer money - what was it spent on?

A O'Sullivan made this Official Information request to Wellington City Council

Currently waiting for a response from Wellington City Council, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: A O'Sullivan

Dear Wellington City Council,

Earlier this year the Council decided this year to take $8million of ratepayer money, not required due to the pandemic, and spend it on environmental and technological advancement, emissions and waste reduction, and Kaupapa Māori innovation.

What projects were funded by the $8 million? What cost benefit analysis was carried out on each? Is the analysis publicly available? If so please provide it. Are any of the funded projects complete? If so what were the results of the post implementation reviews particularly in terms of benefits achieved.

It is noted that this is particularly pertinent at this time when rates increases up to 23% are on the table, as ratepayers need to be reassured that their money is being spend responsibly.

Yours faithfully,

A O'Sullivan
