More than 30 councils will this week hold meetings that are expected to pour cold water on the Government’s reform plans – but a major question is emerging over who will pay to clean up private water supplies, Newsroom reports. At least 11 councils will voted on the reforms on Tuesday, including Waimakariri which received a record 3,844 responses to a community survey on whether it should opt out of the reforms. 95% said opt out. Another seven councils will cast votes on Wednesday.
