Have Your Say

Who represents you?

We are required by law to review our ‘representation arrangements’ at least every six years to ensure our community is fairly and effectively represented. This includes reviewing things like the number of Councillors and wards we have, whether each Councillor represents roughly the same number of people in the district, and whether we should have community boards. We’re proposing to stick with the same ward boundaries, number of Councillors, and  to continue with no community boards for the next two Council elections.

Council makes decisions that affect everyone in our community. To ensure Council is making decisions that reflect what the community wants and needs, we need your input. Providing us with feedback is one way residents can make a positive contribution to the Matamata-Piako District and help Council to remain fair and effective. Sign up for email notifications about the town, topics or documents that you're interested in. We promise to only send you emails when we have something important to share (i.e. you won't get emails from us every day or every week), and you can subscribe to new lists or unsubscribe as it suits you.
