Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Council’s review of council controlled companies found wanting

In light of “services” issues this week with Auckland Transport, ACIL (Ports of Auckland) and ATEED I wonder if the Mayor and councillors are reflecting on their decision last November on the CCO Review. Apart from the proposed Waterfront/Property merger, we are now in the “enhanced status quo” phase of the review to consider improvements in the way we ‘work together’. Elected member feedback in our annual survey last year had average CCO satisfaction at 34%. Solutions we control are possible – but a more honest assessment of the problems during the Review would have concluded that it’s going to take a lot more than ‘enhanced status quo’ to get the “services” we want.
