Kōrero from the Chief Executive

Video script - 17 May 2019

Kia ora everyone, Happy Pink Shirt Day!  I hope you are all in pink and holding onto what this is all about in terms of standing up and stopping bullying.

First I want to mention that you will be hearing from Bronwyn Bayliss on next week’s video about Kōrero Mai – Have Your Say 2019.  We are about to come out to all staff in Council and ask you to have your say about what’s good, what’s not so good and things we need to pay attention to in terms of how the organisation is going.  This is really important to me and the Lead Team to hear from all of you in our organisation.  The survey is going to open next Friday and run for 10 days or so.  Bronwyn will tell you more about it next week.

For me, this week’s focus has been on continuing to support our work around housing. We also had the Provincial Growth Fund board in town and we hosted them here at Council on Wednesday.  We are looking forward to some pretty significant PGF announcements that are being planned for the week of June 10.

On a personal note, I’m about to head off on a long planned holiday to Fiji next week with my whanau.  Bruce Allan will be acting CE so thank you to Bruce in advance for holding the fort for a week.

We’re going to finish this week’s video looking at a really significant project delivered by our Assets team.  You’ll know that coastal hazards and climate change are a really big focus for the region and our Council, so this week’s featured project is the Clifton revetment wall.

Kia ora everyone, I hope you have a good weekend.

Hastings District Council Chief Executive
