Mount resident wants answers from council


A Mount Maunganui resident has pleaded for Tauranga City Council to put aside spending money on boardwalks and library upgrades and solve pressing infrastructure problems.

John Mathews' home in Rita St was not only a leaky building but it had four inches of water running through the ground floor after the street's drainage system failed to cope with last month's storm.

He put his case to the council on Tuesday to fast track a solution.

He was told that a special report on stormwater priorities was being prepared for a decision next month.
