Super City What?
One big question that I have, as we in this area are being treated as second class ratepayers, is – How do we get out of this Super City mess and back into Franklin as we knew it. Feel sure that if there is a way then Papakura would join us also.
I have heard through the grape vine that Warkworth are very upset with the way they are being treated and are thinking of doing the same.
It is very hard to convince this huge conglomerate of what is called the Auckland City Council that Auckland is not just Queen Street or the Viaduct Basin or a train thingy from Britomart to K Road, but now takes in a huge area outside of the afore mentioned.
They increase our rates, send out parking wardens to suck more funds out of the area, God knows what is next – for what in return? Keep up the good work and perhaps one of these days we may have a win in our favour.
Glyn Judson, Pukekohe Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
