The Independent Maori Statutory
Board held a meeting today to discuss a number of issues including the Local-
Government Reform Bill from which the board was born. Our reporter Anzac Pikia
was at the meeting. Yes, they were discussing
the contents of the bill and the board has decided
to lay a claim against it. They were born out of the bill, and it’s the law that
will ensure they survive. Some councillors were concerned
at the $3.1m the statutory board received
for daily costs, but that has not fazed
the chairman at all. They’ve been working on
their Maori strategy for a while and that’s set to be launched
in August along with the implementation of
the audit review on the board. The board was established
under the Local Government Act 2009 to ensure the council meets
Treaty of Waitangi obligations and promotes issues of significance
for Maori in Auckland. The Maori statutory board’s report
will be considered so that they and the wider public
can see what the board has done as well as what still needs
to be done, Scotty. Thank you, Anzac,
live from our Auckland offices.
