Dear Julie Straka,

Could you therefore please with us share the ‘Mayor’s diary’ since 1 December 2016?
I wouldn’t expect to have to wait long for this, it should be publicly available and easily shared via a link to the actual calendar (or screenshots for example). .

Yours sincerely,

Concerned Ratepayer

Good Morning Concerned Ratepayer

 

Attached is a copy of the Mayor’s diary for the period 5 December 2016
until 3 June 2018.

 

Names of members of the public (excluding elected officials) have been
redacted.

 

That information is withheld pursuant to section 7(2)(a) of the Local
Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.

 

The Council considers that the public interest in knowing the names of
those private individuals does not outweighed the privacy of those
individuals.

 

If you are not satisfied with Council’s decision then you have the right
to make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman.

 

If you’re making a complaint by email, fax or letter, the Ombudsman
requests that you include:

•your personal details, including your postal address

•information about your complaint, including the steps you’ve taken to
resolve your complaint and the outcome you’re seeking

•copies of relevant correspondence

 

You can make a complaint to the Ombudsman by:

 

Email:  [1][email address]

 

Fax:  (+64) 04 471 2254

 

Post:  The Ombudsman, PO Box 10152, Wellington 6143; or
