Shouldn’t Someone Resign?

NZ Herald

As just about everyone in Christchurch knows their council is bloody useless. To demonstrate how useless they are they paid $80k to get someone to tell them they are unbelievably useless.

Christchurch City Council is an isolated “fortress” which is “culturally reluctant” to communicate openly with its city’s inhabitants, a new report concludes.

An $80,000 independent audit of the council’s communication systems was commissioned by council chief executive Tony Marryatt in January after mounting criticism that it was failing to inform residents what it was doing post-earthquakes.

The final report, released today, found people unhappy with information surrounding key council moves resulting in confusion over the decision-making process

It said there was “widespread agreement” that the council was not customer focused and had developed a “can’t do attitude”.

They are so useless that the only way to change the culture is for people to resign. The Mayor and the CE would be a good start.

It is a tragedy that the Earthquake Recovery Minister is such a lazy bastard or he could use his dictatorial powers and sack a few people.
