Tani­wha se­cures fund­ing

South Waikato News - - NEWS / HE PU¯RONGORONGO -

The Tani­wha walk­ing and cy­cling event which brought in more than $200,000 to the dis­trict last year has se­cured $50,000 of ratepay­ers’ money over the next five years. The To­tal Sport event was es­tab­lished in 2011 and has at­tracted more than 800 en­trants each year. The eco­nomic benefits proved it was a wor­thy in­vest­ment, coun­cil­lor Jeff Gash said. ‘‘I think for $10,000, that’s a pretty healthy re­turn.’’ The money will come from the Sig­na­ture Event con­cept which is in the 2012-2022 Long Term Plan. The event has pre­vi­ously re­ceived $45,000 from ratepay­ers.
