Mark Thomas - New Mayor for Auckland

Libraries back-flip also not justified

You wouldn’t know it from the resolution, but there’s been an astonishing reversal in the Mayor’s plan to cut library hours. Len chose to hear the feedback against this plan, but remarkably officers came back with an alternative which actually INCREASES library hours for many (but increases penalties/fees to compensate). This looks a better outcome but, like the proposed cut, isn’t justified by demand evidence and wasn’t consulted on.
