OKRA Chairman's Blog – December 2018
We have been reliably informed that it’s going to be a long hot summer – compliments of El Nino. Based on current very wet conditions in the ‘hood, I’m reminded of the following: ‘The only reason we have Weather Forecasters is to make Economists look good.’ Anyway, let’s keep the faith & we can all enjoy another summer in paradise.
NEW SPEED RESTRICTIONS
The 70k zone on Omori Road has now been reduced to 50kph and the 100k zone is reduced to 60kph. Please adjust your speeds over the holidays accordingly. This is important, not only for the safety of the many walkers, children and dogs but to prevent the killing of the now large numbers of birds we have in our district. Sadly, kereru, moreporks and tui have been hit by speeding cars recently so please keep your speed down.

I am stepping down as Chairman at the AGM so this will be my last Chairman's Blog. I thank you for your support and encouragement over the last two years. I know the incoming Committee will continue the good work that successive OKRA Committees have done before them.
I hope to catch up with you at the AGM. If not, do have a Cool Yule.
