Poll: New ramp at council building to increase security

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

Palmerston North City Council is turning its public entrance from The Square into a staff only and disabilities entrance to increase security after the Christchurch terror attacks last year.

The council forked out $64,000 on the changes following advice from an independent security review, even though there's been no incidents of people wandering into the building from the street causing problems.

Is this a good use of money?
