A message on the WCB Facebook page — maybe Dougherty is worried about ratepayers showing up there irate about their ever-increasing rates and water bills to fund his empire?


From today (Tuesday 21 March) some alternations are occurring in the Waikanae Library on the ground floor and will last for about a month.

These alterations are to improve the safety of Council staff and visitors. The main difference seen by visitors will be a safety wire installed across the front of the Council Customer Services desk.

Preparatory works start today (Tuesday 21 March), with the relocation of the Community Information Centre to the library’s ground floor display space. The aim is to relocate Library and Customer Services staff to other ground floor areas ready for building works to commence from next week (Monday 27 March) onwards.
