Whakatāne District Council is seeking a meeting with Local Government Minister Nanaia Mahuta to discuss what it says are flaws in the local electoral legislation.

These flaws were exposed in the process that had to be followed for the tie and recount in last month's Galatea-Murupara Ward election.

This saw candidate Hinerangi Goodman declared the winner by ballot, inaugurated to Council, then declared unsuccessful following a recount.

Whakatāne District Mayor Judy Turner acknowledged the profound hurt caused to both candidates, their supporters and whānau through the election process.

😡 This is NOT the same photo from different angles. These are two separate instances of illegal dumping on Monday and today.

To really salt the wound, this illegal dumping has taken place in Awatapu Lagoon behind Cutler Crescent in the exact same location. To say we are disappointed is the understatement of 2019.

If you see illegal dumping, can you please report it anonymously to Council - details such as a car rego are a good start.

We know it costs money to use the transfer station, but this only covers the cost of responsible removal and disposal of rubbish.

We really need your help on this.
