Housekeeper / Dog Sitter Needed

David from Upper Moutere

We need a live-in housekeeper for our beautiful property on Bronte Rd E
Accommodation is in a fully furnished, cozy and comfortable independent cottage with its own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and laundry.
The Cottage is offered rent free in exchange for 18 hours work per week. Electricity, gas and unlimited fast internet are included.

Duties include housework, cleaning, ironing, lawn mowing, general gardening and caring for our large friendly dog whenever we are away – sometimes at weekends

The position would suit a fit and energetic single lady who would appreciate the beautiful and tranquil setting on the Waimea Inlet. Flexibility is critical, so the position would be best suited to someone without other employment commitments. Having your own dog is a possibility.

The property has extensive gardens, a swimming pool and sauna to enjoy.

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 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.
