Media advisory: Waikato district ratepayers reminded to share views on fluoride
Ratepayers in the south and west of the Waikato district who receive their water from Hamilton City Council need to return their fluoride survey by Monday 30 September to ensure their view is considered.
So far around 1,000 responses have been received from the 2,500 postal surveys sent in early September to property owners in Tamahere, Matangi, Puketaha, Gordonton and Te Kowhai.
The survey, which uses the same wording as Hamilton’s fluoride referendum taking place in the local elections, will ensure the voices of Waikato district ratepayers who receive water from Hamilton city are also heard.
Results from the survey will be shared with Hamilton City Council by the 12 October election day, as well as being publicised following that.
