Quake support defended
By Chris Morris
Less than half of Dunedin’s $250,000 fund for earthquake relief work in Christchurch has been spent, but Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says the city has kept its pledge to support the Garden City. Mr Cull was satisfied with the council’s efforts and the amount spent so far, which largely represented the cost of council staff, vehicles and equipment dispatched to Christchurch following specific requests for help.
