    Cr Vandervis asked about the lights at the stadium, which he said were on day and night during the period, and asked whether that was to melt the snow.

    Stadium roof passes its snow loading test
    By David Loughrey
    The Forsyth Barr Stadium’s roof behaved “exactly as it was supposed to behave” in recent snowfalls, and was designed for much heavier, Carisbrook Stadium Trust chairman Malcolm Farry said yesterday.

    The report to the committee said the plaza area had been handed over to the University of Otago, and construction had started “Cost-sharing between the parties is the key issue for resolution . . . There’s a discussion going on about where the costs fall.” [Malcolm Farry]

      Cr Richard Thomson said at the meeting the council had sought advice from a “totally” interested party; Mr Knight was being asked if the council should replace the company he ran with another. “I wonder if we should get more independent advice?”

      DCC avoiding borrowing scheme
      By David Loughrey
      The Dunedin City Council has steered clear of a national scheme to make sure debt-heavy councils keep the ability to borrow money, but has left the door open to take advantage of the scheme in future. Concerns were raised at a finance, strategy and development committee meeting that advice the council had received in the scheme was from an interested party, and a more independent evaluation was needed.

    What’s with this break with tradition? Cr Richard Thomson just doesn’t get how things work around here. Goodness, “a more independent evaluation was needed” – as if! Go down that track and soon they’ll end up needing a new mission statement to replace “Never was so much taken from so many to benefit so few: our mission is to discredit all naysayers.”

    So, who is going to go to jail and when?

    For how long have so many people been saying that the financial governance and management of the last Council was a potent mix of incompetence and deception?

    Now, it appears that it is all true.

    It is more than clear that the Dunedin ratepayers have been grossly let down and our only recourse seems to be the exposure of all of those that led to this apparent shambles with the hope that those culpable will pay in more ways than one.
