COUNCIL MUST DO BETTER

We are a group of citizens representing business and community interests who share the view that Hamilton City Council must do better.

We came together this year to investigate council affairs in response to significant issues impacting on the well-being of the Hamilton community.

As a result, we are now calling for a  comprehensive review of council finances that include independent financial experts and community participation.
