Keep total number of councilors to twelve. 2 Maori ward, and 5 each from east and west wards. This allows councilors to be more adequately remunerated as opposed to sharing with 14. Is the role of a mayor ceremonial now a days. The CEO of the ham city council makes the operational decisions. A mayor as per se is no longer required. The councilors can choose a chair, but this person is not paid a mayors salary. Just the same remuneration as everyone else.
