Water Receding But Council on
Stand-by for Tonight
The rain has stopped
allowing the water levels that have been causing problems
around the Ruapehu district including flooding in Ohakune to
start to recede.
Ruapehu District Council (RDC) has stood
down the Welfare Centre in the Ohakune Primary School hall
at this time.
The MET Service has forecast further
rainfall for tonight and so Ruapehu District Council will be
keeping a close watch on the situation.
RDC staff will
remain on stand-by and will reactivate the EOC if the
Council is asking Ruapehu residents to
phone in any flooding or other storm related issues to 0800

Ernst & Young Review Of Len Brown Spending
EY found that the Mayor did not inappropriately use council resources to support the relationship with Ms Chuang...
Arising out of the review, EY found that there were some instances where the relevant council policies were not fully met, or the use of resources raised questions. These include, the amount the Mayor reimbursed to council for costs incurred for personal mobile usage, the Mayoral driver used for private family transportation when the Mayor was overseas, and the payment by council of a portion of a modest overseas dinner that was arguably private.
EY found the Mayor received nine complimentary hotel rooms that have not been registered as gifts or disclosed in his completed annual Declaration of Interests. EY reports the value of the complimentary rooms based on rates provided by the hotels is $6,130. They also found the Mayor received hotel upgrades which have not been registered as gifts or disclosed in the Declaration of Interests. There were 64 instances valued by the hotels at $32,888.50.
