The purpose of this report is to obtain a decision from the Council to exempt the Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Trust from the requirements imposed on Council Controlled Organisations (CCO) under the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA).
Moved: Deputy Mayor Kelly Annand
Seconded: Cr Tim Aitken
That having considered all matters raised in the report:
a) That the report of the Chief Financial Officer titled “Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Trust - Council Controlled Organisation Exemption” dated 25th June 2020 be received.
b) That, as provided for in sections 6 and 7 of the Local Government Act 2002, the Council grants the Hawke’s Bay Disaster Relief Trust an exemption from being a Council Controlled Organisation, as defined by section 6 of the local Government Act 2002 for a period of three years to 30 June 2023.
c) With the reasons for this decision being the level and cost of reporting required of a CCO under the LGA is disproportionate to the size, type and the breadth of operations the Trust undertakes and this would not contribute to the effective and efficient provision of support to individuals and the community in an emergency.
Councillor Brent Muggeridge joined the meeting preceding item 6.
