What is the best broadband provider for domestic use in Napier?
Napier mayoral candidate Kirsten Wise says she plans to question why the city's water supply needs to be chlorinated. One of the main issues for her is that Christchurch City Council is on target to be 98% chlorine free by June. "That raises the question for me, if they can achieve that, and their aquifer is nowhere near as good as ours, then why can't we achieve that?"
