    The Mayor of Lower Hutt says the council's latest budget is one of the most challenging long term plans, to pull together

    The Mayor of Lower Hutt says the council's latest budget is one of the most challenging long term plans, to pull together


    The Hutt City Council is proposing a 16.9 percent rates revenue increase - starting in July.

    Mayor Campbell Barry says there's a need to front up to challenges of decades of under-investment.

    He says they're trying to strike the right balance, knowing any cost increase is not going to be welcomed.
