Feburary 2009 on Zenbu

March 6, 2009

3461 edits from 86 users in February. The biggest push came from local councils whose Official Information Act replies continue to limp in.

Auckland City, Napier, Wanganui, Thames-Coromandel, Kapiti Coast & Clutha all supplied information on every food premise, hairdresser, funeral director and camping ground in their region. This is a big boost in information for the regional areas and helps ensure that you will be able to find everything on Zenbu whereever you are.

Blog followers will note that Napier was one of the councils who initially refused the request citing the Privacy Act. The Ombudsman ruled in our favour that this was public information and, some 4 months after the initial request, they coughed up. The other recalcitrant council, Ruapehu District,  is yet to reply to the 2nd Ombudsman order to comply. 

And we won’t even mention the 25 councils who, by not deigning to reply at all, have implicitly refused the initial request. Local government, fail.
