    A slap in the face for long serving Councillors who have constantly opposed this initiative, and a big thanks to all “new” Councillors who campaigned to bring this service back in-house. Hopefully this is the start of some sensible policies.

    Congratulations to the members of Committee. Disappointed that their discussion was all in secret. WCC’s next step should be to bring Citi-Ops back in-house to collect our rubbish and recycling from our backdoors. Locals employed by our Council to provide a service to its citizens. Installation Art (ie: piles of rubbish and recycling bags) will then become a thing of the past. Hurrah!

    Using John Ryall’s hours and rates above, I’m surprise there isn’t a queue of Spanish, Irish and Portuguese applying for a parking warden job since they can make $47,000 a year and that’s before the ‘commission’ kicks in.

    No wonder car parking and towing is one of the most profitable, if not the most profitable business, in Welly (leaving aside the tax break computer geek industry). All you need is a ‘spoil sport’ attitude to life: ticket ’em and tow ’em and you’re living sweet
