We’re holding a referendum to determine if fluoridation of the Thames water supply continues or stops.
The outcome will be binding on our Council.
The Thames water supply area of service covers properties from Tararu in the north to Kopu in the south and to Te Ana Lane in the Kauaeranga Valley in the east.
Voting papers can be returned by post or hand delivered during normal office hours to our main Council office at the address above.
Votes must be in by noon on Thursday 5 November; so if you’re posting your vote allow at least a few days for it to be delivered.
