I raise this question as Tauranga City councillors barge ahead, without asking us, if we are agreeable to paying between $100-120 million for a museum.
They say they asked 100 people! We number 100,000 who will have to pay the cost. There are far more pressing needs in this city than a museum with marae attached.
For instance, the most pressing need is to get rid of the ‘person' who thinks by not developing adequate roads in our city we will all ride bikes. Please fire ‘it'.
We demand a binding referenda on the Issues of a $5 million visitor centre, a $100 million museum, destruction of our library and civic building and the $50 million new library. And we demand adequate roads and systems so this city can function efficiently and smoothly.
Councillors, get your heads on and focus on the real needs of Tauranga.
K Evans, Tauranga.
