Weather warning lifted

Metservice has now lifted the heavy wind and rain warning and watches for the Coromandel.

Fire Communications report there were no issues for the Coromandel area overnight. Meanwhile power has also been restored to all areas.

We have not been made aware of any road closures or slips.

Waikato Civil Defence Emergency Managenent Group say it's fortunate the Waikato region seems to have escaped relatively unscathed from the effects of Cyclon Lusi.

"I'd like to extend a big thank you to al civil defence staff and emergency service staff who have worked throughout the weekend," says Civil Defence Group Controller Lee Hazlewood.

Our Council, along with Civil Defence staff will continue to track weather conditions generally, as well as river level and coastal conditions and provide relevant advice to the public where necessary.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
