Political Catchup-14-08-2019Mayor Helen Worboys (MDC) - Fraser and Helen discussed the new national drinking water agency announcement, what it might mean for Manawatu District Council and the DHB, and possible implications for Storm and Waste waters too. Also, there are a number of bylaws out for consultation as part of the MDC review process. These include Animal, Cemetery, Dog Control, Solid Waste and Water bylaws. We talked about the importance for the community to make themselves familiar with the bylaws and minor proposed changes. MDC are seeking feedback on how MDC facilities are housed, maintained and run. There are surveys on facebook for the community to participate in. The council are keen to hear from the community about the future of things like community halls, libraries, swimming pools and more. And nominations for council candidates close on Friday at 12 noon. 14/08/2019 08:30 AM0:25:38Download //
