Mahurangi Matters, 23 May 2022 – Off the Record

A Warkworth resident received a special delivery from Waka Kotahi and thought something important was about to happen in her street.

Imagine her surprise when she opened the $4.50 courier-delivered package to find that it was just general information about changes to the transport networks in Warkworth that had featured on Mahurangi Matters’ front page, May 9.

“It was delivered a week after the paper and contained a letter in a regular envelope inside.

There wasn’t any new information that wasn’t in the paper or available online. In fact, the letter actually made you scan a QR code to read about the changes online.”

She decided it was just another example of a flagrant waste of taxpayers’ money.
