Res­i­dents in­vited to have a say

Matamata Chronicle - - Sports Awards -

In a 2006 sur­vey, the com­mu­nity told Mata­mataPi­ako District Coun­cil ur­ban flood­ing (stormwa­ter) was the sec­ond high­est con­cern in the district.

Im­prove­ments to the stormwa­ter sys­tems have been made over the last few years and now the coun­cil wants res­i­dents to have a say to help set coun­cil pri­or­i­ties for stormwa­ter im­prove­ments for the next 10 years. Fill out the stormwa­ter ques­tion­naire found in last week’s Mata­mata Chron­i­cle, at the coun­cil of­fice, li­brary or on­line at www.mpdc.govt.nz. Please en­sure your ques­tion­naire reaches the coun­cil by this Fri­day.

The coun­cil is al­ready aware of some ar­eas where stormwa­ter is a prob­lem, how­ever, there may be some is­sues it does not know about. Once the hot spots of the district have been iden­ti­fied, the com­mu­nity will be con­sulted on a range of pri­ori­tised work op­tions.

If peo­ple are hav­ing trou­ble with the ques­tion­naire they can con­tact coun­cil cus­tomer ser­vices on 0800 746 467.
