Council Matters ,
Hauraki District Mayor Toby Adams joined Brian Gentil for a catch up on Thursday morning.
Water restrictions in Waihi and Waikino have been lifted and Toby was complimentary to residents for their patience and savings over the last few months.
Farmers are still really feeling the pinch with the worst drought in over 40 years they say.
Mayor Adams has been to several farm meetings recently to hear what they are experiencing.
Kerbside rubbish and recycling collections are back to normal, with just recyclable plastics 1 and 2 now being put in the recycle wheelie bin, while plastics with a number 3 to 7 now go into the rubbish.
Brian asked Toby for an update on the roadworks in Ngatea township and whether the weekend traffic would be able to stop and shop, and support the town that’s been badly affected across the last few months.
Toby was keen to get people to do just that, even though the job hasn’t been completed he said. It’s progressing well and it would be great to see folk stopping for some food and to do some shopping.
Alert Level 2 and how that’s affecting services at Hauraki District Council was discussed, along with the rates payment holiday to help people out after the Covid-19 pandemic kicked in.
Toby also mentioned to Brian that it was going to be busy around our district across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and to have a great time and take care on the roads.
