It nominally starts at 10 am, although those who think the council will listen to them can show up at 9:30 and register for their 3 minutes of public speaking time on whatever council matters they choose.

The meeting agenda is here.  The most interesting items are always those that the council bosses don’t want the people they serve to know about, the “public excluded sessions”. All you get told is the subject(s) to be covered. This time it is the ‘Peka Peka to Otaki Expressway Property Agreement’, which we assume relates to property owners in the vicinity affected by the Ewy extension, including property owned by the council itself.

If you can’t make it, you can listen and view on the live streaming broadcast here, although this gets turned off for the secret sessions, and its visual and audio quality isn’t great anyway..

Another page of the council website always worth a visit is the job vacancies as this tells us what new bureaucrats the council boss intends to add to the already considerable KCDC staff.
