AGM 2016 - Minutes

Thanks to all members, visitors, representatives and candidates who joined us on September 27th at our Annual General Meeting - with over 60 people attending, making this a very successful meeting.

The community was able to interact directly with those council engineers who look after our roads and water supply and there was an extensive update from the Pathway project.

All mayoral and councillor candidates (bar one apology) were present to introduce themselves and answer questions from the floor.

You can find the minutes from the meeting here.

Meet The Candidates

Please note that our AGM on Tuesday 27 September 2016, 7:00 pm will also be the local Meet The Candidates meeting for the upcoming elections. This is your chance to:

  • meet the Mayor and mayoral candidates
  • meet Ward Councillor candidates

This year will be an important election, as two of the three ward councillors for Moutere/Waimea are not standing again - and there are a total of seven candidates. So make sure you can make an informed choice.
