It has been sitting empty for several years, but Hamilton's Founders Theatre has been costing ratepayers.
Health and safety concerns closed the theatre in March 2016, but since then it has cost about $650,000.
Read the article to find out what the money was for.
What are your thoughts on the cost? And what do you think should happen with the theatre?

Today, I happened to glance at a copy of Waikato Times and lo and behold, most of the front page was dedicated to council declaring what a wonderful vista it will be when the 'derelict' municipal pools are demolished. I was astounded. I am almost certain that supporters of the revitalisation of the pools have never been given the same space and privilege of being on the Front Page. Where is the fair play here? The impartiality ? These pools have been with us for over 100 years, and are one, if not the only concrete outside pool, of its type in New Zealand. They have been the making of many memories for thousands of Hamiltonians and others over the years and yet The Waikato Times and other media sources have chosen to give very little support to the pools. Please people email council, even now at the 11th hour, your voice, our voices could make the difference!
Would anybody know of someone who can fix washing machines for a reasonable price. Quite prepared to pay a reasonable amount but $85 for half an hour, which I was quoted is just too much.
My dirty washing would much appreciate any suggestions :)
