Poll: Do you believe more youth workers are needed in Otara?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

More youth workers are needed in Otara to stop young people getting "sucked into" gangs, said Manukau Ward councillor Efeso Collins.

His comments follow a spate of shootings in Otara in South Auckland.

A house was shot at in the third incident of its kind in Auckland on Saturday.

water care again

Joanne from Pakuranga Heights

have just read that those who use tank water and have to pay a tanker
for water that they are facing increase from March as well
the cost of water supplied to the tankers will increase befoe they pass on their profit which is their living
currently 1,000 litres is $1.386 + GST
from 1st March 1,000 litres will be $3.90 + GST
an increasenearly 200% for a needed commodity with nowhere else
to buy from
Why are such increases allowed,
imagine if milk went up 200% at least we have a choice
