It appears Merulla wants his cake and eat it too! The Motion is carefully and sneakily worded to give the perception that he's proposing the removal of Area Rating in it's entirety for the purpose of fairness and equity in all areas. The key line in his motion is "adding HSR to the general levy". Adding transit to the general levy does NOT stop the Special Infrastructure levy under Area Rating (or other parkland levies). He's trying to get Wards 9 - 15 to pay more for transit but isn't willing to give up the councillors' area rated slush funds for Wards 1 - 8 in exchange. Talk about deceiving the public!
