In less than 3 years Ratepayers contribution has esculated from $26.8 million to $61.8 million. A 130% increase. Councillors have indicated that this is not the end of the cost over runs. Ratepayers are being used as a bottomless purse to subsidise commercial irrigation on the Plains. Time to call a HALT to this now and for a full review of this reckless folly.

Should Airbnb owners help address the homeless problem?

Amy Ridout Reporter from The Nelson Mail

With coronavirus threatening our Nelson and Tasman's most vulnerable, one community group says it's imperative to get people off the streets and out of overcrowded homes before winter.

With coronavirus threatening our Nelson and Tasman's most vulnerable, one community group says it's imperative to get people off the streets and out of overcrowded homes before winter.

One option could be to encourage owners of holiday rentals to let their homes to local residents instead of tourists. If you own a holiday let, would you consider letting to locals to help ease the pressure on the rental property market?

A reporter might get in touch with you to follow up your reply.

Tourist fined for Defacating in Motueka: Will he pay the fine?

Laurence from Motueka

URL re story at the end:
I see that he was issued fines totalling $400. However I don't think the story ends nicely there. Will he pay the fine or just skip out of the country and the matter be written off because of this?

If someone is issued a fine e.g Infringement notice/ parking ticket etc. they will probably have 4 weeks to respond to the notice of fine before the process to file it at a District Court will start. Then another few weeks before the hearing. If there is no proof of service (as the person is long gone from our shores)- the matter will be withdrawn by the prosecuting agency.
The reason I ask this as I worked in the Supermarket industry for 10 years prior to retirement in 2016. We had numerous Freedom Campers caught stealing by our security. The Police were always called but invariably no charges were laid by the Police because they know the person would skip the country prior to the case being heard by a Judge. Some Offenders even boasted about this as it was common knowledge amongst them via Social Media.

Hello lovely people I am wearing my Abel Tasman Community hat in this post.
I am calling for further volunteers to add to my list. The work is not hard(not like Gita!) and usually only for an hour or so when called on. You will only be with one or two other volunteers in most instances. You may not even be contacted but it is good policy to have a larger group to call on at this challenging time. Volunteers need to be fit and healthy and adhering to the MoH guidelines re Covid-19, and with their own transport. PM me please with your details and location. Many thanks.

Fertile hens eggs

Sue from Motueka

Hi everyone - I have an intensively "broodie" hen and my rooster is too young to have fertilised any of my eggs. Would anyone be able to spare 1/2 doz eggs to put under her? I could swop eggs or pay for them. Thanks
