Investigation of mayoral candidate
By Mark Price
Queenstown mayoral candidate Jim Boult is to be investigated in relation to the collapse of Stonewood Homes New Zealand Ltd, something Mr Boult says he welcomes. Ernst and Young liquidator Rhys Cain said yesterday an investigation into the failed company would begin “in the next few days”. It would examine the workings of the company during the two years before its collapse, with a “specific focus” on its final six months. […] Mr Boult was a member of the board of the Christchurch building company for about a year and acted as executive chairman for a period. He stood down from the board on February 1, 2016, telling Mountain Scene later he had done so because he had been part of an attempt to buy Stonewood before receivers were called in and he considered he had a conflict of interest.

ODT: ‘Liberal’ council spending a worry
Cr Andrew Noone is concerned about how “liberal” the Dunedin City Council has been when it comes to spending ratepayer money. He made the comments during pre-draft annual plan considerations yesterday […] Cr Noone said he was worried the council had been too willing to increase spending during the annual plan process. “It does make me nervous we have approached the last day and a-half … in a fairly liberal way in terms of adding things in. I’m nervous … the headroom that we have is disappearing rapidly without having considered the majority of core services.”
