Regional councils asked to help pay for new Hamilton theatre

1 February 2018

Debate heated up at Waikato Regional Council as one councillor took offence at a "tinpot council" jibe.

Councillors were discussing the Waikato regional theatre proposal, its inclusion in the council's 2018-2028 long-term plan, and a request for a $5 million contribution to be collected from territorial authorities around the Waikato.
