Deepest sympathy to the family at this sad time. We too wonder if this is the same person we have seen crossing the road without pausing at the Ninth Avenue roundabout.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
