Gang member’s council contract: $37 an hour and no patches allowed

A gang member will be paid $37 an hour and forbidden to wear gang regalia as part of a Dunedin City Council weed control contract. […] Black Power member Albert Epere would control weeds, litter and maintain paths at six Dunedin sites until June 30, 2016. A copy reveals the $52,000 plus GST contract was based on a 30-hour working week with a fee schedule of $37 an hour.

    Control of weed. First cut and dry, roll in tissue paper and sell for $25 each. Not bad if you get paid $37 an hour for doing it.

    Was back at the Service Centre today asking for information about the DCC Procurement (Contracts and Tenders) policies. Pretty slow coming.

    Grrr.. And was told yesterday morning by Service Centre staff that there were no public meetings on yesterday. When this was NOT true!!!

    Your word on the DCC doing business with gangs
    The city council’s awarded a maintenance contract to local Black Power gang members. It’s worth just over $52,000 and includes weed and litter control as well as path maintenance. So our word on the street team asked members of the public if they think the council should do business with gangs.
