Papakura Local Board member Michael Turner says the Massey Park User Group raised concerns about the fireworks event being held at the stadium due to the recent $600,000 renovations which includes a new athletics track. However, Turner says the local board’s lack of communication with the Lions over the matter has been ‘‘disgraceful’’. Communication rests with the chairman, he says. Board chairman Brent Catchpole says a decision on funding the event will be made at the September public meeting and will not comment further until then.
