Bus services to be cancelled - will you be affected?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Almost 50 rush-hour bus services in Wellington will be cancelled every day from August 25, due to the city's driver shortage.

Metlink said the services would be scrapped for up to six months, with fewer peak-hour services meaning buses would be fuller and more commuters would need to stand. It is hoped that subsequent services would run to schedule and provide enough room for all passengers.

Poll: Is bilingual signage a worthwhile investment?

The team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours - Porirua City's new bilingual signs have cost nearly $30,000 in consultant and designer's fees.

Featuring Te Reo Māori and English, the signs cost $27,360 to design, which included work by cultural advisors and bilingual experts.

Wendy Walker, Porirua City Council Chief Executive, says that "by bringing Māori language into our everyday lives, we help those less familiar with it gain confidence, as well as recognising those who already speak Te Reo."

Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?
