Poll: Should Hamilton City Council shrink the number of councillors?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

A political bunfight is brewing over moves to cut councillor numbers on Hamilton City Council.

Potential mayoral candidate Tim Macindoe, supported by four others, has asked Thursday’s meeting to agree to a representation report that covers replacing the current east-west split with one city-wide ward.

It also seeks consideration of cutting representative numbers from 15 - including 12 general councillors spread over two wards, two Māori ward representatives and the mayor - to 11.
