It’s not of­ten that you hear the coun­cil has money to spend in an area, but noth­ing to spend it on.

Res­i­dents in Wai­tan­girua, Can­nons Creek and Els­don have $38,000 to spend on a project for the ben­e­fit of the com­mu­nity. Let’s get this money spent. Maybe the Can­nons Creek Com­mu­nity Pantry could be ex­panded or a sec­ond com­mu­nity gar­den and or­chard cre­ated.

Per­haps moun­tain­bike tracks could be cre­ated in Els­don?

Or a mu­ral could be painted on the side of Can­nons Creek pool and the out­door area ex­tended?

What­ever the project this money needs to be spent and some­one needs to step up and en­sure that it is.

Mean­while the coun­cil nom­i­na­tions are in and what a turn around in the race for the top job.

Last week there was only one can­di­date - this week there are six.

Our next step is to make sure that when it comes time to vote more of us have our say.
