Removing cheques as payment option

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

All major banks within New Zealand are removing the use of cheques as a payment option, including Wellington City Councils’ bank, ANZ, which isn’t accepting cheques from 31st May onwards.

From Thursday 1st April onwards, Wellington City Council will no longer accept cheques as a payment option for any of our services. This will give us time to make sure all cheques received are processed ahead of the banks deadline.

Don’t worry, there are still some easy ways you can pay for our services:

💳 Set up a Direct Debit for Rates Payments online or by paper form available at our service centre

💵 Direct Credit into Account 06-0582-0106111-00 for services invoice payments

💻 Online at www.wcc.govt.nz...

💳 Credit card (surcharge will apply)

🖐️ In person at New Zealand Post (cash or EFTPOS)

☎️ Internet or Phone banking with your bank

For help on any of the above, please get in touch with your bank.

Dog handlers turns heads

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet the dog walker who controls 16 dogs.
Drivers stop to take photos and after a ruff day, office workers come up to Phil Krieg​ to ask if they can pat the group of dogs accompanying him along the footpath.
It's a hard sight to miss in Wellington, Krieg in his bright yellow vest walking a large group of dogs, moving together as a calm and orderly canine collective.
With Krieg as their leader, the dogs sit when they were told and moved to the side to make way for runners, other dogs and those walking on the footpath.
In 2008, Krieg’s wife, Penny​, came up with their dog walking business, Loose Leash Dog Walking. Penny said they called it Loose Leash because that was the idea – walking the dogs on a loose leash and trusting them to behave.
The pair lead groups of dogs, ranging from 12 to 16, on walks around Wellington.
