Dish­ing the dirt

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Mt Al­bert has missed out on ex­tra clean­ing ser­vices al­lo­cated to eight town cen­tres by Auck­land City Coun­cil.

The sub­urb is not among those sched­uled for an up­grade the fol­low­ing fi­nan­cial year ei­ther.

The Eden Al­bert Com­mu­nity Board wanted some of the $49,000 ear­marked for Re­muera to be redi­rected to Mt Al­bert.

But coun­cil­lors at the arts, cul­ture and re­cre­ation com­mit­tee con­firmed their draft al­lo­ca­tion at a meet­ing ear­lier this month.

The coun­cil is to spend an ex­tra $400,000 on foot or­derly ser­vices in Otahuhu, One­hunga, Glen Innes, Pan­mure, Eller­slie, Re­muera, Mis­sion Bay and St He­liers.

An amend­ment by coun­cil­lor Glenda Fryer to in­crease spend­ing on Mt Al­bert was de­feated.

Foot or­der­lies re­move loose lit­ter, empty bins, keep drains clean, re­move graf­fiti and ser­vice pub­lic toi­lets. The ex­tra hours will start from July 1.

Fur­ther in­creases sched­uled for the 20092010 fi­nan­cial year are ear­marked for Avon­dale, San­dring­ham, Mt Eden Vil­lage, Royal Oak, and four town cen­tres along Do­min­ion Rd.
