Keep me WARM every Winter

Alison Shrigley Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Help us find forever homes for our beautiful adult cats. They have passed through their cheeky kitten stage, know how to use a litterbox all the time and are just happy curling up with you on the couch as opposed to kitten zoomies around the lounge!!! All our adult cats are available for a KOHA and just want a place of their own to curl up in and sleep the days away.

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?
