Remember that successful petition we ran over the summer about retaining our Ferry Service? The Otago Regional Council agreed to run a trial service by supporting the existing ferry following overwhelming support for it. Now the next step along the way: ORC is consulting on funding, the preferred model being targeted rates in the same way as the bus service. Despite the much altered world brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important residents and ratepayers on the Peninsula have their say: https://yoursay.orc.govt.nz/wakatipuferryrate. Consultation closes on 14 May 2020.
