The Senior Council is an informal committee of Council that is made up of people appointed from groups that represent our senior citizens.
Groups represented include: Te Awamutu and Cambridge Grey Power, Te Awamutu and Cambridge Senior Citizens, Te Awamutu Continuing Education, Te Awamutu Pakeke Lions, Te Awamutu and Cambridge Probus, Cambridge Tree Trust and New Zealand Aged Care Association.
Senior Council meets four times a year, with meetings alternating between Te Awamutu and Cambridge.
Chaired by the Mayor, it meets with councillors and Council staff to discuss current issues and projects. It also gives a chance for members to raise issues about Council services and infrastructure.
