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

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

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.
