Costs of the Dog Control Bylaw Maps

Karen Anderson made this Official Information request to Dunedin City Council

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Dunedin City Council should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Karen Anderson

Dear Dunedin City Council,

My preference is to receive the requested information by email.

We have frequently noted the attention given to the maps that form part of the Dog Control Bylaw 2016, to the exclusion of other important and significant issues. The maps received the largest focus in the agenda set for the Dog Control Bylaw Working Party and that is reflected in the report of the Chairperson of the Dog Control Working Party.

As a consequence of being constantly raised by Council officials, the maps have consumed large amounts of time and therefore rate-payers money. Our diary of screen-captures also shows they have been repeatedly changed and those changes also incurred a further cost to rate-payers.

Accordingly I have been requested by members of the Dunedin Dog Bylaw Group to ask the cost of the maps, including when that expenditure was incurred, and the amount of the costs that were funded from money received under the Dog Control Act 1996. Note we expect the information provided to include, although not necessarily be limited to, the dates and costs of creating the maps, the dates and costs of all changes, and the costs incurred as a consequence of the time expended constantly discussing them.

Yours faithfully,
Karen Anderson
