Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

Kapi-Mana News is a key source for Porirua City Coun­cil to get its in­for­ma­tion out, ac­cord­ing to the an­nual res­i­dents’ sur­vey.

Of the 401 res­i­dents asked where they pre­fer to find out about city coun­cil ac­tiv­i­ties, events and in­for­ma­tion, 79 per cent said news­pa­pers.

Over the past 12 months, twothirds have read the City Fo­cus sup­ple­ment, which fea­tures in this news­pa­per each month.

Coun­cil com­mu­ni­ca­tions and mar­ket­ing man­ager Bar­bara Ber­cic said she viewed news­pa­pers as ‘‘part­ners’’ and a vi­tal tool to help en­gage with the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We know Kapi-Mana News is much-loved and while you re­port the news, you are cham­pi­oning events and pos­i­tive things that are hap­pen­ing in the city.

‘‘There are other medi­ums out there, of course, but I don’t see us re­plac­ing those ex­ist­ing chan­nels in the fore­see­able fu­ture,’’ she said.

The other main av­enues for coun­cil in­for­ma­tion noted in the sur­vey were the coun­cil’s web­site (35 per cent), news­let­ters (34 per cent), ra­dio (28 per cent) and so­cial me­dia, such as Face­book and Twit­ter (18 per cent).
