No, this is not the 9 o’clock news or minutes and is a follow up on a couple of points! There are some activities coming up whereby some of the SWAT team will be involved in sessions with councillors etc and also as a courtesy they should know what we are about. So, the message to our elected people is:
1. There are many in the community negatively impacted with the current storm water issues, flooding, personal and property impact.
2. We have called a Public Meeting to provide an opportunity for people who have been either directly or indirectly affected by the recent flooding to tell us their stories.
3. We expect to meet with WBOPDC subsequent to the public meeting and present our information. The December 2012 Tonkin & Taylor report ‘Waihi Beach Flood Hazard Assessment’ recommends that the WBOPDC develop a flood incident database. We need to ensure that the people impact is escalated to a more prominent consideration.
4. It is expected that we can collaboratively work with the WBOPDC and ensure all options to eliminate or mitigate flood hazard are on the table and open to debate.
5. It is our objective to ensure the best option for our community is adopted subsequent to a genuine and transparent consultation process with the Council.
This is a chance to share your story or experience on flooding at Waihi Beach. Information is being collated so that it can be presented to WBOPDC
