Funding Auckland’s favourite things

노영례 0 1,088 2017.06.15 23:59

Most people know that rates help pay for the council to collect rubbish, maintain roads and look after our parks. But did you know that rates also help fund many other things that make Auckland a great place to live? 

Auckland Council has recently agreed on $62 million worth of funding over the 2017/2018 financial year for some of our most popular attractions, services and cultural institutions.

Here are 12 things you might not have known your rates help fund. 

1. Auckland Museum: $30,735,000

Auckland War Memorial Museum is New Zealand’s first and largest regional museum. The collections are of national and international significance and it is the responsibility of the museum to care for these collections and share them with the world.

In 2016, 890,000 people visited the museum. Entry is free for all Aucklanders.

They also provide a range of safety information, services and boating education courses.
