Weather Warning for Waitomo
Waitomo District is expecting a significant amount of rainfall over the next few days. Once again, this will likely have a major impact on our roads and farmland. We ask residents to please take caution and do not venture out into the weather if you do not need to. And if possible, move stock to higher ground.
Surface flooding and excess water may also slow the drainage of the stormwater and wastewater network. We are not expecting any significant impact to the network, water will just take a little longer to drain.
We will keep you updated as information comes to hand.
Stay safe.

Be a responsible dog owner

It is important to register your dog every year as part of being a responsible dog owner. Dog registration provides safety and security for dogs, owners and the community.

Have your ownership details changed? We encourage all dog owners to notify us of any changes in their dog ownership status; change of owner contact or dog details, a change in the number of dogs kept on a premise, or advising a change of dog ownership.

All dogs must be kept under the control of their owner. Adequate fencing, a kennel or running wire are some of the ways you can keep your dog secure on your property.

Don’t make your dogs mess someone else’s problem. The Dog Control Bylaw requires all dog owners to appropriately dispose of any droppings left by the dog in a public place. Bag it and bin it, or risk a $300 fine.
