PNCC Voting

Murray from West End

I see that the Palmerston North City Councillors have decided to stick with the ridiculous STV voting system for the local body elections again. I think this is probably the main reason that Palmerston North has one of the lowest turnouts in the country. I have never yet found anyone who can actually explain how this system actually works in a way where I can figure out if my vote is actually worth doing

Disabled car parks snatched away

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

People with disabilities are missing out on Palmerston North's nightlife because able bodied people are taking their parks after wardens go home.

Should parking wardens hours be extended, or should people gain some more respect.
