Stolen Ute and Trailer

Kevin from Harbour City Tree Care

To all those who have replied to my original post, thank you for your kind words and yes I know it would be a good thing to have an alarm and tracker but who would have thought any one would steal it for a third time especially as they cleaned everything out of it the first two times. I suspect that we aren't going to see it again as someone most probably wanted it for some nefarious reason and needed to use it to move something illegal or something that they have pinched.
I might as well take the opportunity to say that If you are the person who has taken my vehicles, and I am sure that thieves are part of the neighbourly community and may well read this, then just do what what you have to do with the truck and trailer, and then when you have finished, drop it off somewhere that it can be found easily, so that I can get back to work.
And if it's not too much trouble, don't bugger around, get on with it.

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.
