Poll: Horizons commits to reducing emissions buy 30 per cent in 10 years

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

Wider Manawatū councillors have decided to walk the talk when it comes to climate change by aiming to reduce regional council emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.

Horizons Regional Council voted on Tuesday to adopt the target and put $80,000 of unbudgeted money towards understanding its emissions inventory.

Do you think Horizons can do it? Why/why not?

Poll: Taking on your town's te reo name

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

A push to use Levin’s Māori name Taitoko has stalled and the councillor who backed the move says she’s surprised at the negative reaction to the idea.

In 2018 Horowhenua named its draft town centre strategy “Transforming Taitoko” and councillor Victoria Kaye-Simmons said it would also be nice to acknowledge the town's traditional name.

It has not featured since and Kaye-Simmons a faced backlash after speaking out.

What's the traditional Māori name for your town, and would you support its use?
