Are you happy about the loss of 8,000 planted native seedlings?

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora Neighbours, A contested decision by politicians on the Upper Harbour Local Board to mow down 8,000 native plants and young trees, could bring a hefty bill. Council staff reject that there was a mistake in the planting, and now there could be a big bill. What do you think ?

The BMW fled without even stopping. My daughter was shaken and did not manage to get the rego of the fleeing vehicle. She rang 111 center and was informed that they can see my daughters car parked at the shoulder and just wait for a police officer to arrive. The police officer arrived and gathered information and was told to wait for their report.
It’s been almost a month now and we are still waiting for the report as it is needed by our insurance. We already made a follow up call the last two weeks and was told the officers will be informed of our call.
If we don’t get the rego of the fleeing vehicle our excess will be $850.
I was just wondering if such incident is treated seriously by our officers. How long will it take to review the footage given the time and location of the incident?
Please share your views on what to expect.
Thanks.

Fantastic and a big, big smile
Did you know?
Blue whales are the largest animals alive today, and they have no teeth to eat food! So instead, blue whales are filter feeders. There are a total of 15 types of whales that eat this way. These species are known as Baleen whales because they have baleen plates instead of teeth.
However, we also did a small Whale Tales Art Gallery inspired by this outstanding exhibition.
Exploring these artistic Tales at the Whale Trail Auckland is a great idea. whaletales2022.org...
What can we do to make you smile?
