Your rates are used to pay for things that make Napier the best place to live. Roughly a third is spent on community services - our libraries, pool, the MTG, sportgrounds and reserves. A quarter is spent on Three Waters - stormwater, wastewater and drinking water - and a further 15% on roads and transportation. You can get the finer details on this page.
As the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown continues in New Zealand, there is a risk that some households will come under financial stress and struggle to meet their accommodation costs. For some, this could mean that they cannot afford to pay their rates to councils.
