Dear Alison Briggs,

Thank you for your letter.

My question is effectively connected with the query on crop loss payments which I understand some Boards pay to ratepayers automatically.

I would like to know if the Board has straight forward access to the ditch to be maintained, keys to gates, no obstacles in place allowing the Board to do the necessary work. Do ratepayers leave a hard grass strip for equipment to use as a trade off for their drains being cleared or do you have to go around crops?
What happens if the harvest has not been brought in, does the Board wait?

Yours sincerely,

mary hartley

Dear Alison Briggs,

Thank you for your letter.

Regarding point 7. Please confirm the amount of drainage rates paid by each numbered Board Member.

The information requested related to Board maintenance activity. I understand the majority of the Board district is pumped.

As a further request for information, and to help my understanding of Board work, the cost and who pays for it, please confirm the cost attributable to each Member of pumping that water.

Yours sincerely,

mary hartley
