    Just what was a DCC parking inspector doing in Green Island having coffee with a friend during working hours?

    Now I know 550,000 hits on trade me is necessary for staff morale and training employees in commercial activities, but can we expect a chain of DCC transport coffee shops now?

    I’m worried about the parking situation in Green Island. Has the DCC been buggering it up there too, building bulges and impediments to cycle-riders and reductions in car parks in their ceaseless quest to make Dunedin NZ’s No 1 traffic hell-hole?
    Though their objective is barmy their optimism is touching. Childhood exposure to “triumph of underdog” stories like Flick the LIttle Fire Engine, more even powerful in moulding the juvenile brain than seeing alcohol on sale at Wests.

  3. Hi Elizabeth,

    I have made 4 related information requests. Will let you know what responses I get.

    Cheers, Lee

    Oh goodie, thanks Cr Vandervis – mayoral aspirant and successor !!

  5. Just hope Lee isn’t holding his breath for information responses, could seriously damage his future – mayoral or otherwise!
    And that would be very bloody disastrous for Dunedin.
