Questions for the Taupo Mayoral Forum


At the next mayoral forum in Taupo someone should start asking questions about the uncontested contract offered to an airline to replace Air NZ. The specific questions are:

– Why was an airline offered a $1m underwrite to provide air services to Taupo?

– Why was this not tendered out?

– Did the council vote on this deal and if so what was the result of the vote?

– Did the council staff then point out that what the Mayor had the council vote on was unlawful?

– What happened when the tender was awarded to another airline? Did the original Airline threaten to sue?

And why hasn’t the Taupo Times asked these questions?

    Wow, I hope the good people of Taupo are reading and start asking questions and telling others what is going on.
