The Dublin Street Bridge needs replacing and it's going to cost $62.5 million. Mike says Waka Kotahi will come to the party but the council will still need to stump up 40-odd per cent of the cost. A local councillor is proposing the council investsin a massive solar scheme, which involves members of the public "renting" their roofs to the council to put solar panels on. There are some safety concerns in and around the Whanganui River, and Mike has reaction to a local florist's pooch Elton -  who had an encounter with a dog ranger.
