Having to have a by-election to fill four positions left vacant after last month’s October by-elections is unusual, says Waitaki Electoral Officer, David Blair.
“We’ve had by-elections before when there were not enough numbers, but it’s the first time it’s happened for council and the licensing trust,” he said.
A district councillor is needed for the Ahuriri ward, one member for the Oamaru Licensing Trust – Ward One, and two for the Ahuriri Community Board.
