Boats have been floating on Phil's mind with the upcoming America's Cup, regional fuel tax is slowly on the rise, and there's talk of more funding for public transport to reduce the number of those pesky cars.

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, particularly when it comes to protecting our native flora and fauna. From traipsing your dirty boots all over the roots of dieback vulnerable kauri in our forests to bemoaning tree removal that's _actually_ protecting other trees... let's all take a deep breath and do our research, shall we?

Your Worship's been making lunches all morning. Up to two-thousand 'Eat My Lunches', in fact. (...He had help.) He's also looking to gather your rates dollars to fix Auckland's sh*tty (figuratively) traffic congestion and sh*tty (literally) beach water quality problems, but everyone seems a bit reluctant to stump up. Is that fair?

Your Worship had a lovely big Waitangi Day, thank you for asking. But what about this weather? With king tides and downpours leading to tragic losses this week, what plans does Auckland have to avoid such consequences in the future?

Have a good Auckland Anniversary Weekend, did you? With Laneway Festival, the Harbour Bridge all lit up and a bunch more other events taking place, how did His Worship spend his weekend? And _what's_ hidden underneath Albert Park?

What's fifty-something, connects people and is getting a jazzy ol' makeover? No, it's not yr Aunty Gladys. It's the Auckland Harbour Bridge!

Mayor Goff's had it up to _here_ with your trash. Literally. Well... maybe not _your_ trash, per se, but the vast piles of it illegally dumped around Auckland each week. Costing ratepayers up to a cool million each year to clean up, His Worship details his plans to get tough on dumping. (There might even be a few swears.)

Get your motor running, yr motorcycling Worship's here with some news about fixing up Auckland's beaches and phasing out the plastic bag. Listen in as we talk timeframes, rates dollars and, Mike's recurring favourite, helicopters.

With kauri dieback, myrtle rust, rates increases and roadworks grumbling to contend with, His Worship Your Mayor doesn't seem to shrink from the hard questions. Front footing a comprehensive rundown of Auckland's year end issues, Mayor Goff wants Auckland (that's you, probably) to know: he's got this.

Amid a media fog of rising rates gloom, Mayor Goff is here to remind us that nice things don't come for free: that a world class city co$t$ world class dollars.
