Armistice Day icon unlit . . .

LETTER

The usual floodlighting of the Kaiti Hill WW1 monument failed to occur on Wednesday night; although several high-visibility road-side purple ragwort plants have been chopped down.

Given the circumstances of its erection, it is a local icon to Armistice Day.

The street lights at the city lookout and Cook’s Plaza have not worked for several years, despite several excuses having been advanced by the council.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
