Hang­ing their heads in shame

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

We wish to clar­ify an is­sue printed on the front page of SWN re­gard­ing the de­ci­sion ar­rived at by coun­cil re; Toko­roa waste­water sludge up­grade with a blowout to the bud­get of some $236K.

We ac­tu­ally voted against the mo­tion and were chal­lenged by Cr Van Rooi­jen and Mayor Sin­clair for our de­ci­sion, (per­mit­ted by chair J Shat­tock).

We replied quite an­grily that we re­alised we were past the point of no re­turn with the project, but that we didn’t like the rea­son we were there and that we were un­happy with all the re­cent mishaps presently in the news as here we were ready to add an­other!

We un­re­servedly stand by our de­ci­sion to ob­ject to the mo­tion. As coun­cil­lors we tend to hang our heads in shame at the re­cent pub­lic­ity.
