The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Yesterday Waimakariri District Council adopted the Annual Report for the 2018-2019 financial year which reflected on the significant amount of work achieved in the last year.
The 2018/19 year has very much focused on the building of infrastructure with accompanying work to further develop the value-add services the Council supplies on behalf of the community.
Some of the highlights of the year included:
All projects are in line with the projected growth in the District and recovering from the Canterbury earthquakes.
Generally speaking the Council budgets to break even each year - the meaning rates revenue is what is required to run district-wide Council services.
Year-end accounts showed a net surplus for the year, before taxation and other gains, of $29.5m. This was primarily due to $37.7m of assets such as roads, footpaths and parks which are built as part of new subdivions being vested to the Council, being offset with a $7.8m write down on revaluation of interest rate swaps.
Borrowing for the year was lower than projected by $27.9m under budget due to come capital works being delayed.
Overall there were no major variances in the Council’s financial performance from what was signalled during the Long Term Plan which enables the assessment the Council is prudently managing its revenue, expenses, assets, liabilities and general finances.
