Information about who does what at Council and how to get in touch with the people who are working to help you.
Council is (currently) around 46 people from all sorts of backgrounds, working together to help our little District grow into all the potential we see.
Pre-earthquake we had around 23 staff. Post-earthquake we've secured external funding for around 15 new positions all focused on helping us rebuild and recovery. Council has also funded around 6 new positions.
We're a mixed bunch, locals and imports, newbies and lifers. Our longest serving staff member has been here for more than 25 years, our newest started in March 2018.
We may be little, but we've got a can-do attitude and we do our best to help residents and visitors. We look forward to working with you!
