Representation Review – Pre-Consultation April 17, 2018 Council is required to undertake a representation review every 6 years. This review considers among other things, the ward structure, and whether to retain community boards. To assist Council in developing its proposal, pre-consultation is being undertaken on the following issues: Whether the Ratana Community wishes to retain the Ratana Community Board. Whether the Taihape Ward wishes to retain the Taihape Community Board. Two ward structure options for the community to choose from: 1. Amended Status Quo – 5 wards 2. A 3 ward structure – north, central, south To understand the community’s views, Council has developed a quick survey. It would be very valuable for Council in further developing its preferred representation option if you were to complete the survey. It is anonymous and should only take a couple of minutes to complete.
