Funding Auckland’s favourite things

노영례 0 1,057 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.

3. Auckland Festival Trust: $3,337,000

The Auckland Arts Festival is an annual arts and cultural festival that celebrates our city.

It offers unique experiences for audiences and artists, and reaches more than 180,000 people a year.

Auckland's full-time professional orchestra provides a programme of concerts, education and outreach activities, and supports the New Zealand Opera and the Royal New Zealand Ballet in their Auckland performances.

As the charity saving lives at sea, the coastguard looks after Aucklanders at harbours, gulfs and coastlines. Volunteers respond to more than 3000 calls for help in Auckland each year, from fires to sinking boats, flat batteries and medical situations.

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

The Auckland Rescue Helicopter ensures that the communities of the greater Auckland region have the security of a professional emergency air ambulance and search and rescue service available to them any time.
