Poll: Was the $19k Hamilton City Council team talk a good use of ratepayers' money?

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Morning neighbours,

Hamilton City Council staff have been treated to a $19k mass team talk at Claudelands Event Centre. It featured motivational speakers and a 25-minute acrobatic performance from circus company The Dust Palace.

Chief executive Richard Briggs defended the spend.

"Old school thinking is you don't spend any money on your staff and you expect them to just show up to work and go hard," he said after the event.

"New school thinking is you've got to give them some purpose for being here, and today was all about understanding that purpose and improving the wellbeing of the community."

re: regular visitor

Sally from Nawton

Hello everyone,
I put up a notice of a cat that comes around to my place and enquring the owner. I have to complaint about it visiting and it has become a daily routine now for this cat/kitten.
I am very sure he is someone kitten /cat. Just wondering why he is coming over very day usually in the evening. He will be standing outside the sliding door of of dinning room which attracted my cats.
He will eat the biscuits which I gave him. I am sure his owner had feed him unless not in the evening.
May I know who the owner please? I dont want to adopt him as I have 2 cats which are both indoor cats.

Regards
Sally
