Long-awaited Mataura sign gets complaints

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 16 January 2024

A long-awaited sign in the Southland town of Mataura is causing a stir after complaints it doesn't stand out enough.

At a town meeting in 2005, it was decided that the signs at the entrance of Mataura should be replaced because they'd fallen apart.

Fast forward to 2024, and the town finally has a sign welcoming people - but not everyone is happy.

Mataura Ward Councillor Neville Phillips spoke to Charlotte Cook.
