Brian Gentil spoke with Hauraki District Mayor Toby Adams on Friday morning.

First up was the wet weather and how that is a help to farmers who are enduring the worst drought in several decades. Toby talked about the Mayoral Relief Fund which is open for applications now, but be quick they close soon.

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen quite a number of changes within council with some charges being waived, others remaining the same and some increases being kept to a minimum, like rates.

There’s also been a small 20 cent increase in the cost of rubbish bags which Brian queried the Mayor on.

The annual residents survey is open at the moment for feedback on council services, and everyone’s encouraged to let them know their thoughts, good, bad or indifferent. Toby said that’s the only way council can see where things can be improved or changed so please pass on your thoughts.

The brown tinted water on the Plains was another topic of interest that Toby and Brian covered, along with the latest update on the Ngatea SH2 road and footpath upgrade, which Toby is pleased to say is starting to look good as it comes together.
