Heavy Rain Watch - What you need to know

Metservice NZ has issued a Heavy Rain Watch for the Waikato region, in place from 2am–3pm, Wednesday 1 February.

Given the large amount of rainfall that our district has experienced over the past few days, we are urging residents to continue to take care and stay aware of the conditions in their area. Further rainfall could quickly exacerbate existing slips, river levels and produce further flooding quite quickly.

Council adopts its fees and charges for 2021/22

1 Jul 2021, 12:35 PM

On Tuesday 29 June 2021, Council adopted the fees and charges for 2021/22 after completing the consultation process with the community between 21 April and 21 May 2021. These fees and charges apply from 1 July 2021.
Council’s Revenue and Financing Policy provides information on various funding sources and the rationale for how we use each funding source. Typically, where a service or activity benefits an individual customer (eg. a dog registration benefits an individual dog owner), Council will apply a fee to cover the cost of delivering that service.
The majority of these fees remain unchanged. But some changes have been made to the fees and charges of the following activities:

• Animal and Dog Control
• Environment Health and Alcohol Licensing
• Community Services
• Community Development
• Corporate Services
• Assets
