The Office of the Auditor-general considers its investigation
into land purchases by Dunedin City Council-owned company
Delta to be one of its major inquiries for the coming year.
More than 40 staff working for the Dunedin City Council's
infrastructure company, Delta, face an uncertain future as
more upheaval looms.
The Office of the Auditor-general (OAG) is remaining
tight-lipped about two complaints involving the Dunedin City
Council and one of its companies.
Delta says it regrets any inconvenience caused by a series of
problems that have resulted in roadworks on a section of a
Dunedin street for the past eight months.
A former Delta board member involved in approving land
purchases at Jacks Point and Luggate says an inquiry by the
Office of the Auditor-general is a "storm in a teacup".
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull and councillor Lee Vandervis are at
loggerheads again, this time over the Office of the
Auditor-general's inquiry into land purchases by Delta.
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull says the integrity of the Dunedin
City Council's companies is on the line after the Office of
the Auditor-general yesterday launched an inquiry into land
purchases by Delta.
Men were reportedly in tears as Delta confirmed the loss of
up to 23 jobs yesterday, although some workers could yet be
offered a reprieve.
All matters around Delta's deals at Jacks Point and
Luggate should be made public, writes Russell Garbutt, of
Dunedin has been dealt another blow with confirmation Delta
plans to make up to 30 workers in the city redundant, Dunedin
Mayor Dave Cull says.
