After years of holding on, Waitara cemetery is to get a new loo and today councillors will decide what type of loo it gets.
The decision is one of 18 items up for debate at this afternoon's New Plymouth District Council monitoring committee meeting.
Council officers have recommended councillors go for a single unisex standard modular facility of the same type as 10 others built in the district since 2002.
This would come at a cost of $147,000, which is $16,000 more than the next most expensive type and $69,000 more than the cheapest permacrete type.
The committee will decide how to handle cliff erosion at Kawaroa Park in New Plymouth that poses a long term threat to a section of the coastal walkway.
Short-term fixes are expected to cost about $31,000 but it might be necessary to spend $340,000 on cliff base stabilisation in the future.
Also up for a bit of money is the Taranaki Women's Club. They've asked for $10,000 from the heritage fund to help re-roof their Powderham St clubrooms. The final item on their agenda before the public are kicked out is Govett-Brewster Art Gallery acquisitions.
