I have often wondered what the terms and conditions are for the contract between WCC and Tenix but there is no information on the council website and of course Tenix could claim commercial confidence (which is fairly bogus as the only real commercial term would be the remuneration and not what and how Tenix is expected to operate).
Mr Visser says "Absolutely agree that we must also have the personal contact from wardens". Is this actually mentioned in the contract? Does the WCC give guidelines to Tenix on this personal contact? From what I have seen of the wardens, personal contact is not a priority.
While we as the ratepayers/residents of NZ have given the city council the power to impose such fines, it would be nice to see some greater clarity on the council's attitude to parking and how it translates to the relationship with Tenix. I have no problem if the WCC were to be aggressively anti-car from a policy perspective but it needs to be clearly communicated and admitted openly.
