PASSPORT/ID PHOTOS DRY CLEANING SERVICES QUIT SMOKING GREAT RANGE OF GIFTS Quake money response frustrates • By Sarla Donovan THE SOUTH Brighton Residents’ Association is not satisfied with the city council response as to where earthquake donations and insurance proceeds for the eastern suburbs went. Last month, the association asked the Coastal-Burwood Community Board where donations from the February 22, 2011, earthquake have gone, as well as the city council insurance settlement. But the response from the city council has left the residents’ association frustrated. The city council said it was not responsible for the administration of the Canterbury Earthquake Appeal Trust, which holds $5 million donated by an anonymous source to the “children of the eastern suburbs.” “Therefore, your association would need to contact (the trust) directly for information,” the city council report said. Association chairman Hugo Kristinsson said the response was not good enough as they had asked the city council to investigate what had happened to the $5 million donation. Mr Kristinsson told Pegasus Post he would not be contacting the trust. The city council said it was still investigating a $1.5 million donation from the Auckland Council to restore green spaces in the eastern suburbs, of which only $15,000 has been spent in New Brighton. The association also wanted to know where the insurance claim for the South Brighton Community Centre, which was insured for $1.1 million, had gone. The city council said that it had negotiated a global settlement in 2015 for all city council property claims and, as a result, no money had been allocated to individual assets. Mr Kristinsson said this response was unsatisfactory. He said other suburbs had new community centres, while South Brighton was still stuck with a temporary building. “We are treated like a secondhand suburb,” he said. He said they would continue to pursue the matter to “get clarity on why there is so little investment in this suburb.” He said it was the community board’s responsibility to put pressure on city council for a proper audit into spending of the earthquake donations.
