Mayor Len Brown proposed the move at a council meeting last week and it was passed with unanimous support. It s a large sum of money but basically it s $1 a head per Auck- lander and reflects our sense of compassion, Mr Brown says. It s to ensure we are part of an extraordinary response. He says the council is also helping quake victims by sending tech- nical experts to assist with rescue efforts and getting water and power restored. Albert-Eden-Roskill councillor Christine Flet- cher told the meeting while Auckland is facing difficult financial future due to the recession, the need in Christchurch right now is much greater. Waitemata and Gulf councillor Mike Lee warned Auckland would have to share the pain with Christchurch, which could lead to the postponement of some longterm projects around the city. Meanwhile, council staff and council- controlled organisations have been requested to adjust contractual arrangements with suppliers that need to focus their services on emergency and rebuilding efforts. Moves are also under way to assist Christ- church with Rugby World Cup preparations if needed, major events manager Rachael Dacy says. Grants available again Community groups in Mt Albert could be in for a windfall. Grants from the Kerr-Taylor Trust are available again after a 12-month review of the organisation s manage- ment and operation. The foundation was set up from a bequest by Muriel Kerr-Taylor, the youngest daughter of the founder of Alberton House. About $100,000 in grants have been made to the community dur- ing the past 10 years. Application forms for grants are available from the Mt Albert Citizens Advice Bureau or from the trust sec- retary at kerrtaylor@ xtra.co.nz. The closing date is March 11.
