Last week the Napier Council, on behalf of Napier
yachties ratepayers, graciously extended its guarantee of a $750,000 loan taken by the Napier Sailing Club to finance its Northern Beach redevelopment project.
Apart from the dress code, it’s not clear what criteria other applicants will need to meet at the NCC loan guarantee window. But I’m planning to go in and give it a shot … as soon as my double-breasted blue blazer with brass buttons gets back from the dry cleaners. I have this great concept for an attraction featuring trained dolphins.
Is this what Rodney Hide means by insisting that local councils stick to “core business”?!
