    Dunedin ratepayers will foot the bill for 110-thousand dollars going to two major events - to bring visitors into the city

    Dunedin ratepayers will foot the bill for 110-thousand dollars going to two major events - to bring visitors into the city


    A council grants committee dished out 75-thousand to next month's New Zealand International Science Festival, and the rest will go to the New Zealand Masters Games in February.

    They're considered to be excellent Dunedin events which attract many people to the city.

    While there, the visitors contribute to the local economy by spending on hospitality, accommodation, retail, transport and other activities.
