As you may be aware, your water accounts transferred automatically to Watercare last week, as part of the local government changes. You may be wondering how this will affect the services you receive. We can assure you that we are used to providing millions of litres of drinking water every day. It is what we have been doing since 1992, along with treating wastewater and managing pipe networks. What has changed is that we are now serving you directly. Future water and wastewater bills will come from Watercare. This change means there may be hiccups as we nd our feet. We can assure you though; our dedicated team will work hard to x these quickly. If you have any questions or feedback, please call. Our Customer Services team is available on (09) 442 2222 from 7.30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. If you have a fault or an emergency, we are available on (09) 442 2222; 24 hours, 365 days of the year. You can also visit us at www.watercare.co.nz. It is worth remembering that your account transferred automatically, so there is no action you need to take. We look forward to delivering you a great service, every minute of every day. From the team at Watercare Counterfeit $100 bills circulating Money scam: Watch out for fake $100 notes warns Kumeu community constable Mike Collins. Photo: CAROLYN THOMAS By CAROLYN THOMAS If Her Majesty is miss- ing then it isn t real. Kumeu police con- stable Mike Collins is warning people about fake $100 notes. We have some counterfeit money do- ing the rounds and it looks very authentic, Mr Collins says. At first glance you wouldn t know the dif- ference. The fake notes don t have the water mark of the Queen or the holo- graphic 100 in the clear pad. The silver fern should also be clear. When you see there is no 100 in there it s fairly obvious, Mr Col- lins says. Some notes were used to pay rates at the council office in Huapai on October 19 and 26. He advises bus- inesses and anyone else handling cash to check notes thoroughly. One could easily be slipped in among a wad of others, he says. We think there is probably $700 we haven t located. Phone the station on 412-5194 with infor- mation. Law change welcomed By NICOLA MURPHY Legislation changes affecting film workers are welcomed by a Henderson-based film company. Auckland Film Studios chairman Ross Jewell is pleased The Hobbit will be made in New Zealand after the government hurried the Employment Relations (Film Pro- duction Work) Amend- ment Bill through Par- liament last month. The new legislation is designed to make film contractors as a default employment position. It will definitely help us, Mr Jewell says. It keeps the profile of the New Zealand film industry up and means more films will be made here in the future. He says the last year for Auckland Film Studios has been okay but was unwilling to dis- close financial figures. The company is 45 percent owned by the Auckland Council and 55 percent owned by the Tony Tay Group. When the credit crunch happened it was quite beneficial for us because it made the New Zealand dollar quite weak, Mr Jewell says. This made it easier and cheaper for Ameri- cans to make movies here. He says they still have projects under way despite Disney ceasing its contract with the studios in the middle of the year. When you win a major film you can t plan ahead, he says. We ve had a number of filmma- kers looking at our studios and then they end up filming in Rom- ania. It s very immediate so you just have to take what comes.
