Should priority be given to essential services before new tourism infrastructure?

There have been several letters to the editor recently suggesting council should focus on funding the basics first.

It might be helpful if council clearly prioritised stopping the sewage overflows into local rivers, fixing the potholes in the roads and raising the Waipaoa River stock banks. Wastewater treatment to meet the consented water standards and prevent dumping it in the ocean must also be on that list.

A clear priority list from council, with some completion dates, would go a long way to satisfying residents concerns.
