STEPS DISAPPOINTED IN AUCKLAND CITY STORMWATER INFRASTRUCTURE CUTS

November 12th, 2008

It is hard to believe that Auckland City is reducing spending on critical infrastructure projects. Waste water infrastructure is a fundamental need of cities. Auckland is clearly not going to meet it’s ‘BIG CITY BASELINE’ in this area – which is critical to the health and well being of Aucklanders.

“One project sure to disappoint Aucklanders is an $86 million cut in
stormwater spending that will almost certainly result in waste overflows
continuing at St Heliers and other city beaches for years longer than
planned.”

Weeding day, this Saturday, November 15.

November 11th, 2008

STEPS and the project managers for the Roy Clements boardwalk will be carrying out some hand-weeding for the non-sprayed areas of the new planting at the Alberton Ave end of the boardwalk and the edge of Meola Creek edge this Saturday morning, November 15, starting from 10 am.
We anticipate that it will take around 2-3 hours. Small handtools such as small forks or similar are ideal, also gloves.
If you can spare some time, please come along, all welcome 🙂
