I think a possibly easy way for us to manage our post-cut-off power situation could be to set up a joint bank account that we all put a small weekly amount into and then the power company can direct debit from that account.
I went to Kiwibank today to check it out, but they said that they have a maximum of two people/signatories on the account. Also, the two people/signatories need to provide photo ID and proof of address when they set up the account. Any takers there?
whoa..we got no power? really?
I'll be a signatory yo.
I WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS!
Hey Matthew if you want someone to take on this role then you could start a proposal that a specific person does it (then make sure you and Anne form a power-block and cast binding votes so they have to do it and you can take them to court if they don't and use the transcript of the Loomio discussion to prove that they have to do it).
What do you reckon? Democracy?
