"The rocky economic climate has forced Wellington City Council to review its performance and cut spending by more than $50 million.
Which of course is the least it should do, which begs the question why ACT's policy of restricting rates increases to inflation plus population isn't National policy, when Wellington's Mayor - a long standing National Party member - can implement it?
Of course Libertarianz would go a lot further. I'd start by prohibiting rates increases, at all, ever. So councils could shrink, and shrink. Imagine not having local government, I find it hard to imagine what you need it for, once property rights are fully applied, and services are privatised.
