We’ve just released our draft 10-year strategy, and we’d like you to tell us if we’ve got it right.
The new draft strategy is geared at pushing us towards our vision for the mighty Waikato of “empowering our people, caring for our place”.
We’re interested in your thoughts on this new vision and whether you think our six strategic priorities – water, climate, biodiversity, coastal and marine, sustainable infrastructure, transport connections – are the right issues to focus our effort on over the next decade.
Please share your thoughts with us. The survey is open until 1 March.
Recycling collections have stopped due to safety concerns over COVID-19 being spread to our staff sorting recyclables by hand. Our team have been kindly emptying your crates to keep our streets safe and tidy as some people may not have heard about our changes yet.
From Wednesday (1 April 2020), recycling crates put out for collection won’t be emptied. Rubbish bags will be collected as normal. Paper and cardboard will still be collected but sent to landfill.
I have been following the World health organisation situation reports which come out daily and have noticed the quoted cases in New Zealand is consistently lower than those quoted to the public.
Now there could be some credible reasons for this such as probable cases not being included , time Of day reported to WHO not for same time span due to differences in time zones,
My understanding is probable cases are often someone who is assumed to have had the virus due to being the only link between two or more cases but may have been asymptomatic and no longer have the virus, of course if that’s the case these should also be counted as recovered cases.
I think we should be being quoted the same fingers as submitted to WHO
Otherwise we are open to conspiracy theory’s that the government is making situation look worse than it is to encourage compliance to the lockdown.
The who reports are one day behind so is yesterday’s reported cases but they show yesterday’s 6th April cases at 39 and current cases at 911.
Perhaps the government could explain why this is the case.
