Tremendous work by WCC

Chris from Hataitai

Here's a neat bit of work by WCC, in Para St Miramar. Residents wanted the big tree in the foreground of the first photo cut down as it obscured their vision when reversing out of their driveway. I was against removing a mature tree which is one of a long line. Solution: move the footpath away from the tree!

The second photo shows the view from other end of the works. The new kerbline simply extends the previous build-out at the zebra crossing, improving visibility and safety for everyone . One car park lost, one tree saved!

Poll: Should Wellington city councillors get a free lunch?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

There's no such thing as a free lunch, unless you're a Wellington City councillor.
Six years after Andy Foster led moves as a councillor to scrap catered lunches at committee meetings - saving ratepayers $40,000 - the new mayor has now decided to reinstate them. He said the backflip followed pressure from councillors, while also promising to spend less on the midday spread than previous councils. "People felt when you didn't have lunches provided on days when you were working through [into the afternoon], councillors tended to disappear all over the place to get lunch. It reduced team bonding." What do you think- should councillors get lunch provided?
