Being able to keep general rates from rising and reduce the
Dunedin transport rate while still being able to support new
walking track projects deserves a slap on the back for the
Otago Regional Council, chairman Stephen Cairns says.
In the second week of April, 25 South Island robins from
Douglas fir plantations on the flanks of the Silverpeaks were
liberated at the Orokonui Ecosanctuary - another milestone
for the project, as Neville Peat reports.
