COVID-19 Alert Level Four
Following the announcement by the Government that New Zealand will go to Alert Level 4 from 11:59 pm tonight, most South Taranaki District Council facilities will be temporarily closed to the public from Wednesday 18 August.
Facilities including libraries, pools, recreation centres, community venues and playgrounds will all be closed for the next three days. Public Wi-Fi at council LibraryPlus centres will be switched off and transfer stations will be restricted to essential services only.
South Taranaki Council Chief Executive Waid Crockett says the Council is closing its facilities in line with Government guidelines.
“I want to reassure people that all essential services will continue, including general waste collection and critical maintenance works.
Over the next three days we will still pick up residents’ kerbside general waste, recycling and green waste collection as normal. However, we are unable to do our glass collection as it is hand sorted at the kerbside.
