Pre Election Report

Pre Election Report

In the countdown to this year’s local elections (8 October), the Council has put together a Pre-Election Report (PER) which can be viewed below - or from any LibraryPlus centre and the Hawera Administration Building.

The PER is a document which all Council’s must provide. The purpose of the PER is to demonstrate the Council’s financial position and provide information that will enable informed public discussion about the issues facing the South Taranaki District Council.

Over the next couple of months, we will also be featuring the key elements of the PER in Southlink; so keep an eye out.

Remember the local elections are for District Council, Regional Council and District Health Board. Elections will be held by postal vote from 16 September until 8 October 2016 when voting closes at noon that day.

If you’ve got any questions about the upcoming elections, ring us on 0800 111 323 or call the Electoral Officer Dale Ofsoske on 0800 922 822, email
