A population-based funding model means board members are paid less than half those on citybased boards. Banks Peninsula board members are paid $9527 compared with between $22,503 and $23,742 for those in the city. First time board member John McLister said he won’t stand again if the status quo remains in place. And others say that given the heavy workload and low remuneration, they would have to seriously consider whether they put themselves forward in the 2019 local body elections. Currently, city council and elected board members’ pay rates are set by the Remuneration Authority in Wellington. A recent proposal to shift responsibility for deciding pay rates onto city councils would allow them to better reflect community needs and workloads. Board chairwoman Christine Wilson said she supported the idea. •Story, pages 6-7 Sumner Greenwood Farm, Richmond Hill These glorious sections located on Greenwood Farm, Richmond Hill, in Sumner offer you a choice of superb sites with fantastic views of the sea and surrounding hillsides.
