Annual Report and recycling calendar



The Annual Report Summary has been produced as a calendar with next year’s kerbside recycling dates. The Annual Report gives you a snapshot of our financial and non-financial performance and projects from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017.

"We have achieved our financial targets while maintaining a good level of service to ratepayers and the community at large," said Mayor Jan Barnes.

"The new Council, elected last year, has bedded in well with new Councillors quickly coming up to speed with their governance, civil defence and other duties."

Our new civic centre in Matamata is well underway and will be completed early in 2018, she said. The new reservoir in Morrinsville has been completed and will be operational shortly. We have finalised the route for the new cycleway from Te Aroha to Matamata.

The Council was recently graded a Triple B as one of 18 foundation members of the Local Government Excellence Programme. This programme helps councils demonstrate and deliver high performance.
