Each year the BDC develops a draft annual plan and then invites the public to submit suggestions relating to the plan. The BDC draft annual plan and submission forms are available from Council offices on Brougham St. or on-line at: www.bdc.govt.nz . The deadline for the public to submit suggestions and ideas is 4:30 pm, May 20, 2011. A public hearing, allowing you to speak to your submission, is scheduled for June 15, 2011. This democratic process provides every resident of the district a voice in how Council operates. Your involvement is important and a right not to be taken for granted. Consider taking an active role in your local government.
