Summer’s here! Be water smart

The Team from Smart Water

Water-saving tips to help you reduce your water use

Gardening
- Water early morning or late evening to prevent 70% of water evaporating.
- Give your plants a good long soak twice a week rather than a short daily water. You will encourage deeper, healthier roots.
- Use a digital water timer with a rain sensor– it switches on only when needed.  

Pool
- Use a cover to prevent evaporation and keep the water warm
- Keep your pool clean, wipe your feet before you jump in.

Play your part. We value wai in the Waikato.

Poll: Is HCC's Animal Control working for everyone

Liz from Glenview

The Neighbourly community has the chance to help our Deputy Mayor Geoff Taylor and Councillor Sarah Thomson look into how Animal Control (AC) functions in the community. Geoff and Sarah have been informed of our horror night/morning (29.30/12/2019) where Two dogs roamed and mauled Four fur babies. Both are pet owners and would have liked better results for the families of the cats.
Ibanez is still missed and familiar noises are still heard, his gravestone is under the trees, one of his many watch possies. He is only one of many animals, not just cats but rabbits, gineua pigs and even lambs that get attacked and no justice. All animals should have the right to be on their own property and not attacked. Animal control should collect evidence but they don't. If you have a suggestion on how improvements can be made then please go ahead only comments will be forwarded no names. If you think otherwise then let us know too.
I know where the dogs are. There is no gate and dog is visible from road. Animal Control have said no dogs live there. The dog that lives at this place barks at everything even if you stand across the road. The night Ibanez was attacked and killed there was no barking.

Community Festival

Chris from Hamilton East

We have had to cancel the Hamilton East Community Festival on Sunday. Our event application has been declined by HCC as it was received too late. The application was submitted months ago but on the incorrect booking form. We are disappointed that we could night find a way through, but respectful of the rules the Council operate under. We hope to be able to reschedule for later in the year.
