CAT NUMBERS WORRY
I amaware of a young female cat about to have her fourth litter. There is nothing in law forcing her owner to have her spayed.
About a year ago Council committed financially to getting cat numbers under control. What is happening on that front?
Has Council got the courage to make micro chipping and neutering compulsory.
Every cat would then be traced back to an owner who would be obliged by law to be accountable for their cat’ s welfare.

All but one of the general public interviewed disapproved of green corridor route and several suggested Council should have opted for the route around Sulphur Point to the Lakefront for which Council paid professional consultants, who, one would hope, should have known what they were consulting about.

I nearly filled up a quarter of the new red rubbish bins, with what the street cleaner had left behind.
When you apply for a resource consent, one of the conditions is not to let any sediment get into the Council storm water system, yet by not monitoring the street cleaning services, the Council is letting silt regularly enter the stormwater system themselves.
Can Council forget the feel good projects, and ensure that the basics are being done. In this case, will a new broom sweep clean?
