We have 18 community halls / recreation centres across Waipā district that receive funding through rates. The cost of running and maintaining these halls are funded by our rural ratepayers who are located in a hall zone. Of our 7865 rural ratepayers, 4469 fund our halls.
There are a further nine halls across the district that do not receive any funding from Council rates.
We also have three town halls in Cambridge, Pirongia and Kihikihi. These halls are fully funded by urban ratepayers - those of you who live in town. This cost is included on your rates invoice under the Property' activity. We're not proposing to make any changes to how town halls are funded.
