Poll: Auckland's super-city: One decade on: Is local government running more efficiently?

It's been 10 years since Auckland's new super-city was formed, forged from eight legacy councils.

For Aucklanders who have lived through the massive overhaul, do you think local government is running more smoothly?

Auckland Council's first year was far from smooth with the Occupy protest, the Rugby World Cup opening night transport debacle, a battle with central government over funding the inner-city rail loop, and a contest of wills over delegating powers to local boards and council-controlled organisations.

Auckland's inaugural super mayor Len Brown hailed it a success.

"Generally 2011 has been a good first year for the council, " Brown said in 2012.

"We've brought the region together... At the same time we have driven $81 million in efficiencies and reduced the inherited 9.3 per cent rates increase down to 3.9 per cent."

The boundaries of the new super city were unveiled in 2010.

Super city Auckland was divided into 13 wards with 21 local boards.

Art has imitated life for Counties Manukau police.

Police Eagle helicopter crew were talking on camera about water safety when they were called to a real rescue on the Manukau Harbour.

The officers were starring in a video about dangers at sea ahead of Labour Weekend.

It took them a moment to realise the call about a kayaker in trouble was real- rather than a stitch up.

They stopped filming and rushed to the harbour after the alarm was raised about 3.20 pm on October 20.

Helicopter crew soon spotted the kayaker, who was plucked to safety by the Coastguard.

The kayaker was reported to be safe and well.
