Looking for Pick Packers. If interested, please pm me.
On the subject of our wonderful council, property owners should take a close look at your rates bill for the current quarter. My eagle eyed wife spotted that the charge for this quarter was 15% higher than the last instalment, so I checked the time period (maybe this quarter covered a longer time period) but no significant difference. So we paid the same amount as last quarter and will require a letter of explanation before they get another red cent. The really annoying thing as others have pointed out is that they dont give a stuff about ratepayers, are quite happy to destroy our neighbourhoods in the name of progress (remember, anything done in the name of progress of man benefits only one wealthy group at the expense of everyone else) and use ratepayers as a piggy bank to fund their vanity projects. For example, Britomart which wrecked passenger rail transport in Auckland and now this idiotic light rail to the airport which will benefit nobody in our East Auckland neighbourhood, in our, or even our children's lifetimes.
Hmmm, Waihi is starting to look good.
Today we celebrate the UN International Day of Older Persons. Recognising the uniqueness of every individual regardless of age, race, gender creates a community connected by who we are rather than what we are. Join us at Driving Miss Daisy NZ as we celebrate the International Day of Older Persons.
