LETTER TO THE EDI­TOR

One more is too many

South Waikato News - - NEWS/OPINION -

We need a liquor store like a hole in the head, it’s about time the coun­cil lis­tened to the peo­ple. What we need in this com­mu­nity are jobs not liquor. I per­son­ally know the out­fit which has ap­plied for the li­cence and it sells the cheap­est liquor in New Zealand. Why can’t we fol­low Mor­rinsville’s lead and ban any more liquor stores in the com­mu­nity. We al­ready have four liquor stores in Toko­roa not in­clud­ing su­per­mar­kets. We feel we do not need any­more. There is also a park across the road from the pro­posed new out­let, peo­ple will buy liquor and sit in the park and be­come in­tox­i­cated as there are places to sit away from the pub­lic eye. The park is used as a rest stop; not a good look for our trav­ellers to see bot­tles or even worse, in­tox­i­cated peo­ple.

J Brown, Toko­roa
