❤️👍🏽📚Congratulations to the Carterton community who celebrated its library service’s 150th year this month. That's even older than LIANZA!

The Carterton branch of the Wairarapa Library Service is one of New Zealand’s oldest public library services and is housed in the longest-serving purpose-built library building in Aotearoa.

The Carterton library was established by 400 residents – including the town’s “founding father”, Charles Rooking Carter – in 1874, and moved into its current building in 1881. Image credit Reagan Gunderson.

Carterton District Council could we please have some more informative describing the difference between options 1&2 of the wastewater proposal? Option two omits replacing the sedimentation tank (upgrade instead) while noting that it will likely require replacement within 2-5 years. Option two appears to advocate a delayed start rather than an alternative course of action. In which case the Rating impact of option 2, over 10 years, should be higher than for option 1. I would hate for people to choose option 2 because it's cheaper, when in fact it could be more expensive.
