Church Restoration

Tom from Property Maintenance Marlborough

My first post shows some before and after photos of a grand old wooden church which opened in 1866. I was contracted to remove the many years of paint from the internal walls and windows and paint the ceiling, gloss the windows and oil the walls. It was a challenging job, that became a labour of love, but the end results are truely stunning.

Water shortage, the dam and our rate increases

Mac from Richmond

So now it's official, the dam that we all appear to so desperately need with our ongoing water shortage is now a further $25 million over budget and they haven't even started to pour concrete yet!! With the type of "skilled" project management that TDC staff employed for the management of the resurfacing of Bateup Road how can we ratepayers possibly have any cause to be concerned that our annual rate increase will exceed even further the 1.9% predicted by the newly elected Mayor of Richmond for the construction of this major project? The original figure banded about by the previous Mayor was $70 million and I wonder if anyone is taking bets that the final bill will be nearer double that amount?
