Why do you think people aren't voting for mayors and councillors?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Last time Kiwis chose local governments, Waikato councils had the lowest four voter turnout figures.
They were in Matamata-Piako District (24.1 per cent), Ōtorohanga District (25.1 per cent), Waikato District (30.6 per cent), and Hamilton City (33.6 per cent).
Suggested reasons include uncontested races, apathy, and people not knowing how to vote or feeling disconnected from their council.

What do you think the reasons are?

Lodge City Rentals

Smoke alarms must be installed within 3 metres of every bedroom door, or in every room where a person sleeps. Plus if the rental is multi-storey, smoke detectors must be fitted on each level. New smoke alarms need to be photoelectric, have a battery life of at least 8 years or be hard wired. However, the tenant should replace the batteries in smoke alarms.

At Lodge, our property management team stay up to date with the latest regulations and can answer your trickiest rental related questions.
