Blowout blundering

Letter

How ridiculous, now the council is blaming Covid-19 for its $3m budget blowout on the pool project. People can’t keep blaming Covid-19 for their stuff-ups. I just hope this doesn’t come from our rates money.

Also, our East Coast communities only get a pittance for our playground upgrades. Every occasion we are told that “you can only spend this amount of money, because we have to apply for the funding”. Also, “you only get the same amount of money as your neighbour, not any more”. Why can’t we be factored into the overall funding budget? I’m sure our communities would love to have a nice swimming pool for our tamariki.
