The Wairarapa COVID-19 Recovery Joint Committee is being stood down for the foreseeable future, with the agreement of local iwi. Over the past year we have seen our communities cope better than was predicted, for which the mayors are proud and grateful. Work to promote the social wellbeing of communities continues through the implementation of future Council long term plans, and the good work of community groups. The three councils will monitor the situation and reinstate the Recovery Committee, with management support, if the need arises.
