Lockdown excludes public from Waikato councils' decisions process

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Piako Post

Hi neighbours,
Technology's a saving grace for many organisations amid New Zealand's coronavirus Covid-19 lockdown.
But the majority of Waikato district councils are grappling to catch up with many not having the technology to live stream meetings during Alert Level 4, many pressing matters will now be discussed behind closed doors.

A move that has been slammed by the New Zealand Taxpayers' Union.

What do you think these councils should be doing?
