New Deputy Incoming For Carterton Council

Carterton District Council will have a new deputy mayor after tomorrow’s council meeting.

Former deputy mayor Dale Williams, who was appointed to the role in October 2022, stepped down last week.

The agenda for tomorrow's meeting includes the appointment of a new deputy mayor.

Mayor Ron Mark acknowledged Williams’ “dedicated service to council” in a statement today, which was supported by Williams.

“I would like to acknowledge that Dale indicated at the outset he was prepared to step down mid-term should I wish to appoint someone else for the second half of the triennium,” Mark said.

“Dale’s experience as a former councillor and mayor [of Otorohanga] has been invaluable and he has laid the groundwork for me to transition another councillor into the role.

“He remains a valuable and experienced member of Carterton District Council and we will all continue to draw on his knowledge.

“I look forward to working together with Dale and all of the team as we work together for the betterment of Carterton and Wairarapa.”

Under legislation, mayors can appoint a deputy mayor with no involvement from councillors, or the mayor can choose to run a collaborative process, seeking expressions of interest, engaging with all councillors, and providing an opportunity for all of council to vote on the appointment of a deputy mayor.

The main item of business at tomorrow’s meeting is for councillors to accept decisions from the Hearings Committee deliberations on the Long-Term Plan.
