The elected representatives of the Dunedin City Council now think it is right to favour one important ethnic group over others. ALL meetings of the Council and its standing committees should be held in the Municipal Chambers of the Dunedin City Council, except in circumstances where rooms are not available within the Chambers or the Dunedin Town Hall complex due to building redevelopment work – in which case another central city venue should be substituted. This latest deviation from democracy is as insane as it is obscene.

DCC heads to marae
The Dunedin City Council will hold Monday’s full council meeting at the Otakou marae, and a meeting on Wednesday in the city. Under the Local Government Act 2002, the council must provide opportunities for Maori to participate in local government.
