Coromandel drowning serves as warning

A man drowned in the Coromandel on the weekend.

The drowning of a man near a Coromandel town is serving as a timely reminder for swimmers this summer.

Whitianga Police Sergeant Andrew Morrison says a 25-year-old man tragically drowned at Crayfish Bay on December 9.

“Our sympathy is offered to his family.

“Please stay within your ability whether it be in the water or playing one of adventure sports and stay safe this summer.”

The man's death has been referred to the Coroner.

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
