This city now more than ever before, demands a Council comprising a strong diverse team of individuals, dedicated to improving the whole of the City, not just its centre. For me the answer lies with us – the constituents – we are the ones who vote the Councillors in.

Our dispute with Tauranga City Council and Bay of Plenty Regional Council with regard to their issuing of a Resource Consent to Transpower to erect super poles at either side of the Maungatapu bridge and sling 100,000 volt lines across the harbour at this location continues.

In 1994, State Owned Enterprise Transpower became owner of the national grid, which connects power generating stations to local power companies throughout NZ.

Every aircraft engine is only permitted to fly for a given number of hours before it must be totally overhauled, remanufactured or replaced with a new one. This regulation is referred to as TBO or ‘Total Before Overhaul’. Island Air’s pride and joy is a six-seater Cessna U-206 G (ZKWWH) and its Continental engine was coming to the end of its TBO in 2018.
