COVID-19 RESPONSE : Federation of Ratepayer Associations of New Zealand Inc committee member Jane Johnston has made some notes on things Ratepayer Associations need to get busy with to make sure our councils are engaging with their ratepayers to provide appropriate responses to the new challenges that we are likely to face after the lock-downs have ended

Because of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions on gatherings, the Federation of Ratepayer Associations of New Zealand Inc has had to postpone its Annual General Meeting and we are now looking at holding the Annual General Meeting from 1 p.m. until 5p.m  Saturday the 25th of July 2020.   An e-mail will be sent out to all groups to confirm and to provide further details .  Being a nationwide organisation, we need to obviate the need for participants to travel by taking advantage of video-conferencing technologies and,  although the actual meeting will be held at the Massey-Birdwood Settlers' Hall in west Auckland, provision will be made for those who need to participate through Zoom

 The Societies Office  have put up a page on how Incorporated Societies are affected during the Covid-19 lock-down. 


This Ratepayers and Residents' website, e-mail address and associated facebook page and group were created back in June 2015 to enable ratepayers and residents throughout New Zealand to locate their - and others' Ratepayer and Residents' Associations in order that we can all communicate and work together. 
  To find out if there is a Ratepayer and Residents Association in your area go to the Regional Council tabs above  and scroll down to your own Local Territorial Authority.
If you know of any Ratepayers and Residents' Associations that aren't listed here or that the information provided needs to be updated or changed ,
