3 waters and Nelson City Council

Mark from Nelson

I was wondering how many people in Nelson are aware that the Government has put in a low ball offer to buy our 3 waters infrastructure.This offer ( it won't be raised) is approximately 10% of its value. If this Govt. gets its hands on our water etc it will be run by 4 Water Authorities, the … View moreI was wondering how many people in Nelson are aware that the Government has put in a low ball offer to buy our 3 waters infrastructure.This offer ( it won't be raised) is approximately 10% of its value. If this Govt. gets its hands on our water etc it will be run by 4 Water Authorities, the boundaries for these 4 Authorities are drawn up as are the Maori Tribal Boundaries, who will be handed our water supply for free( Govt. is paying) as a joint Maori/Govt. entity. Do you think you will be paying more or paying less per litre for your own water.??
The most disturbing thing is, the NCC 's CEO and the Mayor are on the Govts. 3 waters working party. Is this a conflict of interest??
The Mayor was elected to look after the best interests of all Nelsonians and their infrastructure. I would have thought since water is our life blood it would be the very last thing you would ever sell at a marked down price. Think it's about time the Mayor and CEO were a bit more transparent and tell the people of Nelson which way they are voting. It is in the Local Body Act that any Council selling a large asset, in this case one that has been bought by the ratepayers/users over many generations, that they have to consult at length with the ratepayers and all. Therefore, surely such a big decision should go to a referendum rather than some deal done behind closed doors as has happened in the past.

3 WAYS TO CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS…

• Reach Out - Wave, say ‘Kia Ora!’ or introduce yourself. Welcome new residents to your street when they move in.
• Look Out Help keep your community safe by looking out for your neighbours. If something doesn’t look right let them know or get help if needed.
• Help Out Share any surplus from your garden or fruit trees. Offer to take the rubbish out for someone who needs a hand. Take time to have a chat with someone who lives alone.

There are many ways you can make a difference in your community!

Neighbours that know each other are more likely to offer assistance, accept and ask for help when they need it.

Let’s build a stronger Aotearoa by staying more connected.

Rocks Road closed by car accident on Sunday 25 July

Jim from Enner Glynn

Such was the volume of traffic, that Sunday - not a business day - diversion added 28 minutes to my journey, underlining just how crucially essential it is for Nelson to have its long overdue security of a third arterial road.

Today, Monday, Rocks Road is closed again - this time by the weather.

I hope every driver who on Sunday was enormously inconvenienced - along with every other thinking Nelson resident - will see to it that none of these councillors are returned next election.
