More rates go to roads
AN EXTRA million dollars from
ratepayers to maintain the dis-
trict s roads has been included in
the Selwyn District Council s
annual plan for 2013/14, to make
up for a drop in funding from
The plan was approved at a
meeting last week.
Ninety-two submissions were
received on it, covering a range of
issues such as transportation
expenditure, land drainage, com-

standard of roads in the district to
decline. The extra $1m will be
used to continue to maintain roads
to their current standard, as the

can continue to fund road main-
tenance work in future years,
bearing in mind this reduced level
of government subsidy.
Rates were also set for 2013/14,
with an average increase of 5.3 per
cent, down from the 5.8 per cent
proposed in the Long Term Plan.
The council also approved a pro-
posal to place Selwyn Investment
Holdings Limited in liquidation,
and a new plan to guide the future
of community centres and halls in

and a particularly high standard
One of the most anticipated art-
ists this month will be Soodesh
Jooron, who has exhibited inter-
nationally, winning many awards.
Jooron is a figurative painter
who excels in portraiture, still life,
wildlife and landscapes.
Born into a family of artists, he

titions at the age of 10.

Philip Beadle has travelled and

Since the Christchurch earth-
quakes, he has enjoyed painting
some of the city s historic build-
ings, documenting their character
before they had to come down.
Werner has drawn and painted
all her life, with a preference for
painting horses. She mostly works
with watercolours, oils, soft
pastels and graphite, and has

experienced watercolourist. How-

the shapes of buildings.
This high-quality exhibition at
Selwyn Gallery will be open daily
