Pa to get work done
There'll be more mowing, rubbish
removal and weed spraying
services at Pukekiwiriki Pa.
The Papakura Local Board has
agreed to spend an extra $10,000
a year to increase service levels at
the Redhill pa. The pa's joint
management committee, made up
of local iwi and local board
members, had told the council it
wanted to raise standards of
maintenance at the pa in view of
the importance of the site to local
Maori. Parks staff and the
contractor will meet iwi
representatives for a blessing
before the work starts and will
agree on protocols for pest
management of plants and
animals. The money will come from
a general fund already set aside for
the pa's management.
