First alert of Bro Cull’s mixing with criminal gangs: a joint submission by Notorious Mongrel Mob and Black Power to the DCC Draft Annual Plan 2014/15.
Supposedly this is a very cool thing to spend ratepayer money on: the rehabilitation of violent mobsters and thugs, or their drug-damaged lower ranks – they and their ‘equipment’ financed on the proceeds of serious crime.
Of course, this ‘news’ to law abiding citizens (the very few left at Dunedin) also brought a number of clots out of the trenches to say how freaking wonderful and ah, what a grand and sympathetic gesture it is, raining congratulations on Mr Go-between Cull for getting these guys Sorted ~!!!!

Dunedin gangs keen for work after burying hatchet
By Vaughan Elder
After burying the hatchet, the Notorious Mongrel Mob and Black Power are keen to take up a council contract and cut some of Dunedin’s grass. The once warring gangs gave a joint submission at yesterday’s annual plan hearings, asking councillors to consider giving them a contract to maintain some of the council’s green space. They also asked for access to City Forests to provide firewood for families who struggled to stay warm during the winter.
Are other community groups in need of manual work being similarly advantaged? Is this another mayoral spending gesture like the one affecting the clan of Taranaki.
Our dear Mr Cull — such generosity, as Dunedin City Council burns down around him, awash with its own plagues (plural) of multimillion-dollar fraud and corruption. All chargeable to the ratepayers.
Lord, have mercy, the gangs of ill repute – the violent assaulters, drug manufacturers and dealers, serial rapists, murderers and burnt out amongst them – are Dunedin ratepayers too. Enlightenment and Empathy are JUST CRAZY like their patches.
“We are looking at perhaps having a [trial] under the economic development strategy.” –Rebecca Williams, DCC

DCC considering contracts for gangs
By Vaughan Elder
The Dunedin City Council is investigating giving council contracts to Notorious Mongrel Mob and Black Power.
This comes after the once warring gangs made national headlines when they gave a joint submission at annual plan hearings in May, asking councillors to consider giving them a contract to maintain some of the council’s green space. Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull said since then council staff – as part of a wider review of procurement practices – had begun looking at ways council contracts could be awarded to smaller groups, such as the gangs. This would likely involve breaking up some council contracts into smaller packages, Mr Cull said.
The ratepayers of Dunedin City owe these clowns Nothing.

This is no different than previous council contracts being awarded to Delta, for example.
