Auckland City residents should follow the rest of the region, take pride in their community - and mow their own berms, says a councillor.

Rodney councillor Penny Webster says that at a time when household budgets are tight, the council cannot afford the $12 million to $15 million cost of mowing berms for the whole region.

The council voted to save $3 million by not cutting grass berms in the old Auckland City area from July.
