Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

There is one roll of dog poop bags provided at the marked spot on the map. Unfortunately, this is not nearly enough for this area. This has to be the most popular dog exercising area in Taupo, and the provision of just ONE roll of bags is totally insufficient. I walk my dog there every day, and often see this dispenser empty. Over the Christmas holiday week, it was bedlam there with all the visiting dogs using the park. Unfortunately, the bag dispenser was empty!! consequently I saw a lot of dogs fouling, and the owners just had to walk away and leave it. Yuk! I suggest another dispenser be attached to the existing post so that there is always at least one roll with some bags on it. Also, another dispenser should be put down at the main carpark near the bins because a lot of dog walkers go there. There is an awesome dog water bowl provided, so why not also provide a bag dispenser. It makes great sense to me. thank you, Kath Keeley.
