Dear Masterton District Council,

I would like to receive a breakdown of the costs of the Masterton Signage Poles including areas of the budget allocated to consultation, planning and design, manufacturing, and erecting the poles amongst other costs.

I would also like to see the breakdown of the intended budget with the same cost divisions.

Please send information in 2 separate comprehensive tables.

Thank you.

Hi Ruth

It's Emily Norman from the Times Age,

I actually lodged the FYI request before I began working as a journalist here in Wairarapa for my own interest and the interest of other Masterton residents, but am still wanting this information.

Thanks very much for your prompt response today,

Hi Tracy and Pim,

Thank you for the information received August 14, however I did ask for both the intended budget and actual to allow for a comparison.

Although the information does not fulfill the entirety of my original OIA request, it does sufficiently fulfill my personal curiosity which was the intent of the request, and I thank you for your prompt reply Mr Borren and MDC.

I have marked the OIA as finished and that I have received "some of the information".

Thanks very much for your help,
