Stolen Ute and Trailer

Kevin from Harbour City Tree Care

Hello neighbours,
Once again we have had our work ute stolen for the third time in 2 years . It was taken in broad daylight this afternoon between 12.45 and 2.30 pm. If anyone out there sees it could they let me know where it is, as we really need it back.
And to those who keep taking it would you please stop picking on the little guy who is just trying to make an honest living, unlike you, who are just out to take what you can get, don't care about anyone but yourselves, and don't care if your actions result in a business having to go bankrupt and putting 5 people out of work.

Nine minutes of fireworks cost cash-strapped council $175,000

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you support the council paying for fireworks?
Wellington City Council spent more than $175,000 on a fireworks display that exploded over a city facing a funding crisis, a rates hike, and a range of controversial cuts.
The council is considering a rates rise of up to 17 per cent and is scrambling to save money as it deals with a wave of big costs such as ageing pipes, a Central Library refit, and the Let’s Get Wellington Moving transport package.
The council last week ditched an idea, proposed by Mayor Andy Foster, to save $120,000 in the coming year by getting rid of a programme of free pool entry for under-fives. But others remaining in the queue for possible cuts include a new Chinese gardens, cutting of some library funding for books, and some capital replacements.
