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 >>

Council in a strong financial position but affordability still the biggest issue
16 Oct 2009
Staff reported to the finance and monitoring committee on council's performance measures in a new look Annual Report. "Council takes measuring its performance very seriously," said finance and monitoring chair Craig Bauld. "Every year we set targets and then do our very best to achieve those targets. How well we do is measured in a variety of ways including ticket sales, resident satisfaction surveys, customer feedback and environmental testing. Last year council met or almost met (within 5%) 78 of its 107 performance targets. Areas we did well in include reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, managing our water supply despite a dry summer and responding to animal complaints, hazardous spills and rural fire calls. We are happy with this result but will strive to improve things like the time taken to resolve service requests, time to process building consents and to improve the return to council from our business units," Mr Bauld said.
