Taken from Te Puke on December 12. And the Police have JUST made it known !!! It's probably in the South Island by now, OR has been used to poach shellfish up the Coromandel or even trout in the CNI for the last MONTH. Perhaps a public notice of stolen boats (and cars) should be made within 24 hours - before they can be repainted.

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
