Produced by the New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union each year, the Ratepayers’ Report serves as a tool for Kiwis to compare rates, staffing metrics and debt levels from councils all over the country. Data is collated from LGOIMA requests and council annual reports providing ratepayers with full access to critical information on their local council.
