Ngatea Scouts [914781]

The group leader of the Scouts writes requesting assistance to help pay for windows that were broken in the Scout den.

There were 19 windows broken last month costing the group $700.00 to have them repaired and 13 windows were broken last week.

The writer advises that they do not have funds to cover such events and if the vandalism continues the group may have to close down.

The request was discussed. It was agreed that more information from the group on their insurance arrangements, contact details and financial status are provided before any further consideration can be given to the request.

RESOLVED

THAT the correspondence from Ngatea Scouts is not received, and

THAT staff seek further information from the group on the history of the incident their insurance arrangements, contact details, financial status, and

THAT this information be provided to the next meeting of the Ward Committee.

PLWC12/44 Leonard/Gordon CARRIED

As regards to the shed beside the Scout Hall, a member asked who is storing equipment in this shed and what are they storing there. Due to its untidiness, the member asked that this be investigated and addressed with the parties concerned.

Hall – Kitchen

A concern with the kitchen bench not containing water was expressed and investigations are underway to mitigate the problem. A member requested that serious consideration be given to replacing the bench top to ensure the problem is solved. It was agreed that the bench top be replaced to address this problem.


Hugh Hayward Domain - Painting of Internal Walls of Grandstand

Staff advised that this project will commence when the weather is suitable.

Comment was made that staff consider the rugby season and that the painting does not conflict with this. The Community Services Manager informed the Committee that Park and Reserves Manager is pricing the gib stopping and painting before progressing to ensure funding is adequate.

The Ward suggested that if the 2011/12 $15,000 funding will not fully cover the Grandstand painting and the upstairs rugby room, then some of the 12/13 funding of Grandstand miscellaneous renewals may be used as long as all the identified works are completed first.


Ngatea Pool

The painting of the pool will commence when weather permits.


Kerepehi Public Toilet Renewals

It was advised that the $2,000 has been allocated for minor plumbing works to the toilets. Cr Challis noted that the toilets are subject to vandalism and suggested he speak to the Domain Committee to get feedback from them on possibly re-siting the toilets in the future.

Ngatea Swimming Pool

Staff summarised the results from the de-brief meeting held with last season’s Pool Supervisor.


Future Ward Report Items

The Community Services invited the members if they had additional items they would like to see reported on at the Ward Committee meetings.

The members listed a number of items they wished to have reported as follows:

  • Non Financial Performance Targets
  • Six monthly site visits to current project
  • All Domain Committee minutes to be received by the Ward Committe
  • Domain Committee Councillor Representatives asked to update the Ward Committee on status of domains.
