TO THE EDITOR Hoon City again
Letter from TCDC to all ratepayers regarding Williamson Park:
Commercially-run concerts with alcohol will take Whangamata¯ back to ‘Hoon City’ as it was 12-15 years ago.
The Summer Festival for family groups with no alcohol was generally well behaved.
Last year’s concert with alcohol was a disaster for anyone living or visiting the area.
It brought volumes of complete idiots with no respect for people property or Police.
GRAHAM WINCHESTER Review of the TCDC Alcohol Control Bylaw:
Has our council not read the Police reports in the Coastal News? Most point out the biggest problem Police have in Whangamata¯ is alcohol. As for the headings ‘wines by the water’ Beers on the Beach’. Really? CARMEN WINCHESTER
