Concerned: The State of Hamilton's Roads and Sidewalks

Maureen from Tamahere

Has anyone else noticed how incredibly filthy the roads and sidewalks have become recently, especially when entering and exiting Hamilton from the South?

There's an alarming amount of debris and trash around the off-ramp toward Airport Road and its surroundings. And not even one trash bin on either of these pedestrian paths.

Who is responsible for this, and why haven't we seen any campaigns from councils to address the littering?

Poll: Would you pay more to scrap card surcharges?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

We are used to tapping our card to pay in stores, but we are now having to decide whether to swipe it, insert it or use paywave depending on credit card surcharges. It can all be a bit tiring!

Would you rather that a retailer's card surcharges were just built into the cost of the items themselves? Share your thoughts below.

Type 'Not For Print' if you wish your comments to be excluded from the We Say You Say column of your local paper.
