DCHL changes lack transparency —where’s the report, Shale?

Calvin Oaten draws attention to this advertisement appearing in the Business section today:

Calvin, I note the DCHL ‘shake-up’ restructuring plan is very slow to surface. Why? Perhaps Mr Denham Shale and Mr Bill Baylis are not aware of the need for public accountability and transparency. We have been waiting MONTHS and MONTHS for their information.

In August 2011 the Dunedin City Council voted to accept radical recommendations in the previously confidential Warren Larsen Report (released 11.8.11) that slams governance of Dunedin City Holdings Ltd (DCHL), the council’s holdings company.
