Wairoa Mayor thanks community for Three Waters feedback

The Wairoa community did not hold back on expressing its opinions on the Government’s Three Waters Reform proposals, Mayor Craig Little said in a statement today.

Wairoa District Council received submissions from around 60 residents, Mayor Little said.

“Our Council designed a survey to gather people’s thoughts and we also received feedback via email and Action Station Aotearoa- an independent crowdfunded community campaigning organisation,” he said.

Mayor Little said Council appreciated hearing from a range of community and iwi members.

Council’s submission to the Department of Internal Affairs is available here: https://www.wairoadc.govt.nz/assets/Document-Library/Other/Three-Waters/Wairoa-District-Council-Submission-to-Governments-Three-Waters-Reform-Proposal.pdf
