Lake Horowhenua

Joan from Levin

Another $12.5 million is to be spent on 'cleaning up' the Lake. Thats over and above the already spent $7 million plus on a 'clean up' that never achieved results. It seems strange that Horowhenua District Council intend spending this money whilst at the same time nitrite spilloffs will continue to pour into the lake, from agricultural and dairying practices in the surrounding area. Alongside that in the Adoption of the Annual Plan 2020, HDC plan that 'Council officers continue working towards acquiring a discharge consent for stormwater from Councils stormwater network to Lake Horowhenua from Horizons Regional Council'. Does anyone besides me find that counterproductive to spend so much money on a Lake cleanup while continuing to pour heavy metals and other contaminants into the Lake?

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

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?
