Annual Report highlights a busy year
27 Oct 2009
Forty two million dollars was collected in rates last year in the Gisborne district. The Annual Report, which goes to Council this Thursday, outlines how residents benefitted from that investment. "Last year was about asking residents how they saw this district in 10 years time and what council should be working on," said Mayor Meng Foon. "After listening to feedback from many parts of the community we produced a Ten Year Plan and worked with organisations to decide what community outcomes we should all be working towards. These outcomes are a useful barometer of how council is performing. "A highlight for council was the progress made on the new wastewater treatment plant. In July 2008 we were looking at an $85M plant at the airport. Now we have consents to build a $45M plant in Banks Street. Building is expected to start in 2010 and the current milliscreening site near Midway Beach will soon be cleared" Mayor Foon added. Read more >>
Whataupoko trails a tribute to volunteers
27 Oct 2009
Without the enthusiasm of Bernie Vette the popular Whataupoko park trails, used by hundreds of mountain bikers, walkers and runners each month, may not have been developed. Bernie has volunteered thousands of hours over the last 7 years to develop this area and has been the driving force behind getting other volunteers on board. "I saw an opportunity to create a great asset for the Gisborne community on this unused land. This was a project I could really get my teeth into and it has been very rewarding," said Mr Vette.

Our district's under siege from pink flowers
23 Oct 2009
Every spring our district's hillsides, roadsides and reserves turn pink as the invasive "holly leaved senecio" sometimes known as pink, or purple, ragwort takes hold on any spare land it can find. Holly leaved senecio is an aggressive garden escapee that forms a dense cover, reducing the productivity of land as it competes with pasture and other plants. The downy, parachute-like seeds are mostly wind dispersed but can also spread by people and contaminated machinery. Read more >>
