Beau­ti­fy­ing group lob­bies for bud­get

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Keep Porirua Beau­ti­ful has asked the city coun­cil not to slash their $63,000 bud­get, as part of the long term plan con­sid­er­a­tions. Out­go­ing KPB chair­per­son Jeremy An­der­sen told coun­cil­lors at LTP hear­ings last week that a pro­posed 30 per cent cut would have a huge ef­fect on an or­gan­i­sa­tion that ac­counted for ev­ery cent and tried to foster civic pride in Porirua. ‘‘We do not take our bud­get for granted, there are pas­sion­ate peo­ple who are try­ing to make it work and cre­ate aware­ness in the com­mu­nity.’’ Mr An­der­sen said more than 100 peo­ple have signed up for their ‘Adopt A Spot’ cam­paign, they hold reg­u­lar plant­ing days and would like to be in­volved in the city cen­tre re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion and any ini­tia­tives around Porirua Har­bour.
