Let’s turn the first sod!

It is good see the NZTA has finally seen sense and decided to add a bypass for Katikati to their State Highway 2 Waihi to Tauranga programme.

A very swift back pedal, which looks likely to have been prompted by 2017 being an General Election year, but a very positive one at that.

Now let's hope it doesn't get stuck in NZTA's slow wheels of bureaucracy. The community believes the land is purchased and route is designated from the last time it nearly made it over the line. So let's get the first sod turned.

K Morland, Katikati.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
