Draft budget feedback pretty good: council
By Chris Morris
The Dunedin City Council says feedback on its draft budget has been “pretty good” despite some disappointing turnouts at public meetings in recent weeks. The council concluded a series of eight public meetings and drop-in sessions with a discussion of cycleway and road-widening work on Otago Peninsula at the Edgar Centre on Tuesday night.
Public submissions on the council’s 2014-15 draft annual plan were “flooding in now” and had reached 427 by late yesterday, council corporate planner Jane Nevill said. That was well above the 262 submissions received by the council on its 2013-14 draft budget.

ABCTV: For 25 years John Clarke and Bryan Dawe have broadcast a weekly interview in which prominent figures speak about matters of public importance.

Free Wi-Fi for Dunedinites

How many cafés in George Street DON’T have free Wi-Fi ?!
How intermittent is 3G coverage in Dunedin’s CBD really ?!

Not many of us bother to connect to high-speed broadband ?!

The Insiders Dunedin campaign was a substantial FLOP !!

Tourism Dunedin was tracking to meet only 7 out of 18 targets
[half-yearly report] !!

NOISE and no substance ?!

Free WiFi for tourists ‘ideal’
By Rosie Manins
Free internet access throughout central Dunedin is an ideal next step in the city’s bid to attract more visitors and let them promote it as a destination worldwide, industry professionals say. At present, free WiFi in the Octagon and other isolated pockets of the city contribute to its ”good performance” in the digital arena, but much more could be done, Tourism Dunedin chief executive Hamish Saxton said.

”International travellers expect to be connected to the rest of the world and to their contacts at no cost. Dunedin offers a great introduction to the city with free WiFi in the Octagon, where the default website is dunedinnz.com, and I think it would be ideal for free WiFi to be more widely available throughout the city.”

Parts of dunedinnz.com were translated into ”simplified Chinese” and Tourism Dunedin planned to continue its digital investment, Mr Saxton said.

Mr Saxton said the recent roll-out of high-speed broadband and fibre in Dunedin meant residents and visitors were far more connected, and it was important the area’s tourism operators further invested digitally to capitalise on that.

Insiders Dunedin was a good example of sharing positive aspects of the city to an international audience, using authentic content from residents, Mr Saxton said.
