The members supported the request as they had supported other students participating in the Spirit of NZ youth development voyage.

It was agreed that $200.00 be granted to match the College’s contribution.

RESOLVED

THAT the letter from Ruby Twyford is received, and

THAT the Waihi Ward Committee grants $200.00 to Ruby Twyford in support of her participation in the 10 day youth development voyage on the Spirit of New Zealand from the Waihi Ward Discretionary Fund.

Pensioner Housing

It was reported that there are three vacant units in Waihi. One at Upper Moresby Ave, one is a bedsitter at Lower Moresby Ave and a bedsitter at Kenny Street. Fortunately, they are all in a tidy condition with no maintenance required.

A member passed a general comment that they considered bedsitters are not a popular layout for most people and believed that Council consider converting these units at some time in the future so that the bedroom is separate from the living area. He suggested a wall be constructed to create a division of these areas.


Pool Report

Hauraki District’s pools have now closed for the season. Staff advised that a debrief will be held where operational staff and management can reflect on the seasons performance. Key points raised in this de-brief shall be reported in the next months Ward report.


Annual Plan Projects 2011/12

The Community Services Operations Manager took the members through the status of annual plan projects.


Gilmore Lake Reserve Renewals – Miners Commemoration Area

As the 29 Kowhai trees that were donated to the Gold Company which were to be used for the Miners Reflection area have now been planted elsewhere, a member suggested that Kauri be considered for planting.

After further discussion, it was agreed that the original decision to plant Kowhai’s in the area remain and that they be planted in this planting season.


Victoria Park Car Park Renewal

It suggested that the car park surface be constructed in gobi blocks.


Morgan Park Rugby League – Shared Use of Field

Following last month’s request from the newly formed Waihi Rugby League Club to use Morgan Park on Sundays and Wednesday nights, a discussion was held regarding the shared use arrangement of Morgan Park between the Rugby Club, Rugby League Club and the Soccer Club.

It was agreed that Cr McLean contact Warren Coffey of the Rugby League Club and representatives of the Rugby and Soccer Club and organise a meeting between the three sports codes to discuss the shared use of the field with a view to reaching an shared use agreement.

In consideration of the staff recommendation that Council funds a dual use goal post system, it was pointed out that dual purpose goal posts do not work properly for soccer as balls can hit the uprights and bounce back into play.  It was therefore agreed that a decision on the goal posts be deferred until the meeting has been held between the three codes. It was also considered that the League club needs to prove itself before money is expended on goal posts.

RESOLVED

THAT Cr McLean organises and facilitates a meeting between the three sports codes with a view to confirming an agreement of the shared use of the Morgan Park Field.
