Mayor opens her di­ary to the pub­lic

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place - LAWRENCE GULLERY

A powhiri for a new po­lice in­spec­tor, Mata­mata Civic Cen­tre De­vel­op­ment work­ing party and the Hospice Mata­mata open­ing are just some events and meet­ings mayor Jan Barnes at­tended dur­ing July.

It forms part of the ‘‘may­oral di­ary’’ which will be re­ported to the Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil to­day.

May­ors can make their di­aries pub­licly avail­able as part of their ef­forts to be ac­count­able to the com­mu­nity.

On July 5, Barnes at­tended a powhiri at Matai Whetu Marae to wel­come In­spec­tor John Kelly as Area Com­man­der Waikato East.

On July 13 she at­tended a work­ing party meet­ing to dis­cuss the civic cen­tre de­vel­op­ment and on the same day at­tended the open­ing of the new hospice op shop in Mata­mata.

A site visit to Jag­gers Road, to view fu­ture hanger sites from the Wa­haroa Aero­drome fol­lowed a meet­ing on July 22 with the aero­drome’s co-gov­er­nance group.

The mayor’s fi­nal en­try for the month was her at­ten­dance at the Ran­furly Shield chal­lenge rugby match be­tween Waikato and King Coun­try at Bed­ford Park on July 30.
