Kia ora Horowhenua

We know we'll probably get a bit of flack for this, but for the first time ever, the Horowhenua District Council team are taking the day away from our normal 8 to 5’s to dive into some important planning, prioritisation and team-building stuff. Our offices and facilities will be closed on Friday 13 October. This includes the Aquatic Centre, community centres/libraries, and main office.

We know this might not be the best timing for some of you, and we're sorry for any hassle it might cause. But here's the deal: just like any other effective business, we need time to work on the business as well as in it. This day is all about making our services even better for you in the long run and enabling what matters today and in the future. We're all in this together, and we promise to be back – inspired, focused and ready to serve you.

Voting booths

We’re required by law to keep our voting booths open, so these will still be available.  The voting booth at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō will shift to the Youth Space for the day, the Civic Centre and Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom voting booths will operate as normal.

Urgent queries

For any urgent queries, you can still contact us by phoning 06 366 0999 (which will be managed by our after-hours team).

Thanks for your support
The Horowhenua District Council team
