Southland District Mayor Gary Tong and Gore District Mayor Tracy Hicks stand by the
information they released yesterday on the WasteNet recycling tender process.
They are disappointed by SdE chair Stephen O’Connor’s response today.

“However, we are not going to engage in a tit-for-tat debate as we believe it will further damage ongoing relationships, and add extra stress and confusion for everyone.
“We have asked our staff to fast-track the review of what further information can be released without jeopardising any future decision around this tender process, which remains live.”

The mayors believe it is essential the public has the opportunity to have as much information as possible so they can make an informed judgement.
