Poor wi-fi means he can’t work from home, so mayor Phil Goff is almost alone in the council’s 29-storey building, Stuff reports. “Poor wi-fi and cellphone coverage where I live makes it impossible to do the online calls that take up most of my day,” Goff said. Goff and his chief-of-staff keep a social distance on level 27, and Goff is proud of the ease with which the council moved into online working; the previous day’s full council meeting was held with everyone – politicians and officials – dialling in.
