Harland attacks ‘offensive’ media commentary
The Dunedin City Council annual plan meeting began with finger-pointing yesterday, when council chief executive Jim Harland launched an attack on the media.
Mr Harland devoted his address to attacking an “offensive” Otago Daily Times editorial published on Wednesday. The opinion piece, entitled “Annual plan sham”, criticised the council for being “as profligate as any in the city’s history”, questioned the value of the annual plan process and queried senior managers’ motivation to “decrease the size of their empires”.
