was a time to catch up with an old friend and to listen to resident concerns. Over the 2 hours I had a chat with five different people. Their concerns were:
- the use of glyphosate by Council. One person had attended the recent briefing of Council on the topic and was impressed with the presentation on alternate methods and in particular the effectiveness of steam. The other is already convinced that the risk is too great to continue its use. Now this topic is in public arena Chanel 7 did a story on it last night. One suggested that if the Council continues to spray it should alert people coming in contact with it if red dye was added to the liquid. He was also impressed with Councillor questions and buy in on the issue at the briefing
- one person commented on the condition of the grass at Page Park
- the other two were interested in traffic management and called for Council to look at lengthening the yellow lines that prevent parking in Forest Ave (at the corner with East Ave), and in Hartland Ave ( near the Aroha Tce corner) and speeding control in Addison Ave
Hope to see you next time, which will be November 16th, 10am to12pm. at Rise and Grind.
