Your Kaimai Ward Councillors will be at Settlers Hall this Saturday from 9am -12 Noon to receive feedback from the community on proposals to introduce Council contracted rubbish and recycling collections as well as a number of bylaw and policy proposals including gaming machines and beehives on urban properties.
If these issues are important to you this is your opportunity to speak directly to the Mayor and Councillors and make a submission on any Annual Plan issue.
If you cannot make it to this meeting there will be another opportunity on Wednesday 3 April at Te Puna Quarry Park Gallery from 4pm – 7pm.
We are looking for a cat loving house sitter for 1 week. From Sunday 14th- Sunday 21st April. Prefer single person, will consider a couple. We have a large sunny house in a quiet street in Omokoroa and lovely views. Please contact Tammy 022 046 0364. Must have references.
Are you motivated and organised and keen to help keep this wonderful little community resource alive? We need your help! We need 2-4 VOLUNTEERS to join the committee and help us get things in order. We could possibly look at remuneration for the right person at least on an initial basis.)
We also need shift volunteers to help run the library during open hours. Currently we’re open every Saturday 9.30-11am, but we’d love to be able to extend our hours and open perhaps once or twice during the week so more families can take advantage of our services who can’t normally get to us on the weekend. Would you be available to help us open for additional hours? It’s a great way to meet some of the wonderful families in this community. Low commitment, low involvement.
We’re keen to hear from anyone – no matter what your experience or skills! Mums, dads, grandparents, students, retirees… anyone with time on their hands! We’re sure there’ll be something we can find you to do.
Please email email@example.com or phone Jo on 021 628 467 for more details. We look forward to hearing from you.

One part of the Council ‘Have your say’ consultation running from 18 March to 18 April concerns the Class 4 Gambling Venues. (Pokies, slot machines, gaming machines).
Council is suggesting a sinking lid policy. Only those currently operating can continue. No new ones can be installed and none can be shifted from one premise to another.
If you feel that gaming machines (pokies) are harmful to society then support the Council in this approach.
If the Council proposal is supported by the community then the change will come into force later this year. This means that when the proprietors of the Locals’ Bar and Eatery apply for their licence renewal at the end of their first 12 months of operation, they will NOT be able to apply for a gaming machine licence.
Support the Council proposal and there will never be pokies in Omokoroa.
A major change in the rubbish collection system is proposed in the current Annual Plan. Your feedback is important. Read the documentation and have your say.
