Waitematā Local Board member Sarah Trotman last week resigned her position on the board, providing her resignation in a letter to Chief Executive Jim Stabback on 9 October 2021.

Board chair Richard Northey acknowledges Ms Trotman’s resignation and her contribution to the board for the last two years.

“Sarah did some great work with local businesses in her economic development portfolio, particularly in helping them access mentoring and advice during the first COVID-19 lockdown last year.

“She has also represented her constituency with passion throughout our board’s planning and decision-making processes.

“We respect Sarah’s decision to resign from the board and wish her well in her future endeavours.”

The implications of Ms Trotman’s departure, including whether the vacancy left by her departure will be filled, will be decided by the board at its meeting on Tuesday 19 October.

Your basic, slightly worn, home file cabinet for keeping all your important correspondences. The dimensions are 50.5W x 62L x 72Tall.
BUT, think outside the File Cabinet box; could be used as a quirky herb garden, or who doesn't need a non-fancy storage box for the garage; all those little things that are a bit big for a bench; like small batteries, or drills, or gosh, so many options, and the price if FREE.
A lick of paint and she's a new woman.

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!
