ORFU, crematorium on bill

The Otago Rugby Football Union bail-out debate will again echo around the Dunedin City Council table, when a full meeting of the council today moves to confirm the minutes of an extraordinary meeting that discussed the issue two weeks ago.

It is likely debate on the matter, however, will be with the public and media excluded.

The meeting may also result in news about the Andersons Bay crematorium, which, it emerged recently, the council might consider selling.

Those issues, and the "appointment of a director", will also be discussed in private, though the council indicated the crematorium issue, at least, could be made public following the meeting.
