A fresh group of locals joined the Tamahere Community Committee at its tri-ennial elections this week.
Fifteen residents accepted nomination to the committee, six of them new to the role, and were subsequently elected at last night’s meeting.
Sue Robertson was elected chair and Leo Koppens deputy chair.
Several long standing committee members did not seek re-election, including long term chair Dallas Fisher and the long serving Ro Edge.
The committee is designed to ensure that residents within a ward have a voice to represent the views of the community to the Waikato District Council. It supports the ward councillor, Aksel Bech.
TCC meets monthly at 7.30pm on the first Monday of the month in the Tamahere Community Centre. Its meetings are open to the public.
Minutes of meetings are posted here on the Waikato District Council website.
