Fear $400,000 car park regime an overreaction to 'ignorance' of a few

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Feilding-Rangitīkei Herald

Hi neigbours,

The local council is seeking feedback on a monitored parking proposal for the Feilding CBD, funded by the ratepayer.

It's hoped three-hour limits will help turnover parks and provide greater opportunity for shoppers to find spaces, presently dominated by all-day workers.

Do you think parking limits and the threat of fines is the best way to persuade town workers to park away for the shops, or are there other ways to encourage buy-in for better parking etiquette?

Feedback closes September 12.

Could the jury service process be improved?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Every year, thousands of New Zealanders are called up to serve as jurors in the High and District Courts, and it's an important way to contribute to your country.

But for some, jury service can be a huge disruption and a financial burden. Do you think changes could be made to our jury service system to address these challenges?

Escalating crime in NZ

Daisy from Feilding

Obviously we are not informed of the true numbers of car thefts, burglaries, violent crime etc in NZ. I was front and centre of a police chase yesterday on Albert st. 2 men in a car suddenly ditched their car and one of the men on the run was running towards my car. Seconds later a police car came racing around the corner and I thought it was going to be a head on crash with me luckily it wasn't. 2 More mufti police cars quickly joined in the pursuit.

Anyway my point is how bad is crime in NZ and how much has it escalated? Is the true extent of it being hidden from us?
