Do you know how the proposed rates changes will impact you?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

Farmers have been shocked to find the Far North District Council's proposed 'Fairer and Simpler Rates' system will see their rates increase by as much as $10,000 or 30 per cent in a year. A raft of changes to the way rates are calculated have been put forward by the council, with mayor John Carter saying some ratepayers will pay more while others will pay less. Do you know how the changes could impact you? Do you support the changes?

Have you been able to book a Covid-19 vaccine appointment?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

A plan to offer Covid-19 vaccines to everyone over 50 in Northland has been called “a shambles”, as those over 75, who should have been high priority, cannot get a booking to get their dose. Last week, Northland District Health Board decided to buck Ministry of Health recommendations and open up its vaccine clinics to all over-50s. But with 73,000 Northlanders in this age group, it has been overwhelmed with demand, receiving an average of 50 calls an hour and more than 2000 emails to book an appointment. Have you had the same problems, or have you been able to book a vaccine appointment?
