From Your Mayor
Tena koutou katoa - greetings to you all
The saying, pA rich community isnot strong but a strong community is richq resonates with me as we head this year towards our 30th anniversary as the Tararua District.
I feel the strength of the District in working together has increased and believe 2019 will be an exciting year.
The opportunities this District has to offer are becoming more and more visible as the additional publicity surrounding the new Manawatu Tararua Highway project puts us firmly on the map.
We welcome both new residents and businesses to our part of the country.
An increase in population assists in keeping rates down and brings vibrancy through a burst of fresh ideas and energy.
We continue to see positive changes in technology as it provides more accurate data and new efficiencies, and this rate of change is unprecedented.
The Tararua Health & Wellbeing Group is up and running and strives to create a key link between health and wellbeing service providers and the community.
They will be a strong voice with direct access to MidCentral District Health Board, service providers and the council regarding service development projects and initiatives.
Cr. Alison Franklin sits on the governance team and already has meetings arranged with residents to discuss their ideas.
I thank all of those that have put their hand up and been selected to be a part of this exciting and essential group that will padvocate for positive change in areas that have a fundamental impactq for the residents of the Tararua District.
Noho ora mai s all the best Tracey Collis
