The Government is stumping up with more money to remove sediment and debris in the Hawke’s Bay and Tairāwhiti Gisborne regions. $133.2 million has been allocated for Hawke’s Bay and $38.8 million for Gisborne and Associate Minister for Cyclone Recovery Barbara Edmonds says the latest funding will help councils collect, process, remove and dispose of sediment and debris. Yesterday we reported that the Hawke’s Bay Horticulture Growers’ Taskforce is frustrated with the lack of response from the Government. The taskforce sent a request for a $750 million recovery package to save the region $3.5 billion, but had received no response.
