Increased cost to wastewater treatment facilities has resulted in a possible toilet tax.
Matamata-Piako District Council has recently upgraded it's wastewater treatment facilities, costing them nearly $25 million.
One of the options was to place a tax on toilets.
Mayor Hugh Vercoe says this was only one idea, and while the feedback has been against the proposal, he has been impressed with the response.
"The community have come back and said 'Hey, we don't like that idea. We like the idea of sharing the cost on the big users, but the actual toilets don't reflect the usage' and in that I have to agree."
He says an alternative would be to install water meters.
