$20.82 for letter from council

Apropos the previous post: to illustrate the problems ratepayers have with Environment Canterbury.

A farmer sent the regional council a letter.

The reply came with an account for $20.82.

When she queried this she was told, that’s what ECan is now charging for letters it sends.

    that’s one way of stopping people demanding answers in writing!

    The Unitary TAs in the country seem quite happy with their lot….

    We had an odour complaint that the ORC investigated and found to be non-offensive but they still sent us a bill for $600.

    Send it back, with a cheque, and an invoice for $150 which is what YOU charge for answering stupid letters.
