Still on about ‘rising ground water’
Submitted by flatout on Thu, 21/01/2016 – 8:05am.

When will you…Dave…and the council admit it was a lack of mainenance that caused the flooding in Dunedin? Stop blaming climate change and rising ground water. Stop talking about high cost plans of moving South Dunedin and buying properties. Stop your endless council staff meetings about the issue of ‘what to do with South Dunedin’. Do maintenance on the stormwater. Do invest in South Dunedin to keep it a place to live and work in. All you need to do is clear drains and stormwater system that has coped with worse floods in the past…1968 for example.

DCC: Audit and risk subcommittee

Do you believe “anything” Audit New Zealand says after DCC decided to build the stadium with such a BAD business case? NOPE

[NZ Farce] Ratepayers needed to know they were getting as good a service as any other ratepayers would get from other councils. –Lothian

Financial stability still a risk, committee told
By Debbie Porteous
Financial sustainability, a new funding model for Forsyth Barr Stadium and detecting potential fraud might be its highest priorities risks, Audit NZ has suggested to the Dunedin City Council’s new audit and risk subcommittee. Complying with legislation was not such an issue for the council, but it should work on putting all its management policies and procedures into one document so there was broad understanding of everything happening in that area, Audit NZ audit director Ian Lothian said.

Audit and Risk Subcommittee:
Susie Johnstone, chairwoman (accountant)
Cr Richard Thomson
Cr Chris Staynes
Cr Hilary Calvert
Janet Copeland (employment law specialist)

● City councillors may attend all meetings of the subcommittee.
