More are satisfied with Council's services
26 Oct 2010
The newly elected Gisborne District Council will be governing an organisation that residents are increasingly satisfied with. The bar has been set high for councillors performance.  A recent survey found that 66% of residents rated the performance of the Mayor and councillors as very good or fairly good. This is up 5% from results in 2008 and above national averages. For those that have had contact with the Mayor or councillors, 80% of residents rate their performance positively. Read more >>
Beach driftwood clean-up
26 Oct 2010
Trucks and diggers are hitting city beaches over the next week removing the annual build up of driftwood in time for summer. The stretch of beach between Waikanae's Cut and 200m past Midway Surf Club will be cleaned up. The driftwood along the rest of the beach will be left to get washed out to sea naturally. The amount of wood on the beach is particularly large for this time year after prolonged bad weather in August. The clean up started a couple of weeks ago and the intention was to have the clean-up completed and the beach groomed by Labour Weekend. This was set back by the recent storms which washed a lot more debris down the rivers. Now the driftwood that needs to be cleared from the beach has just about doubled. Read more >>
