We are proud to present the 2021-2022 Annual Report to you, our community.
Mackenzie District Council adopted the audited 2021/2022 Annual Report on 16 May 2023.
Revenue for the year was less than planned mainly because we received less income from subsidies and grants, and lower than expected timber sales. However, we did receive additional income from unbudgeted carbon credits, higher development and financial contributions, and vested assets.
We spent more than planned on forestry costs, corporate planning support and consultancy fees, road flood repairs and signage replacement.
During the year we successfully completed and progressed the following key projects:
- We secured $500,000 grant funding which enabled the placement of 25 youth in employment within the district under the Mayors Taskforce For Jobs Scheme.
- We completed the Te Manahuna Ki Uta/Destination Management Plan, a multiagency strategic planning process for the Mackenzie District.
- At the Twizel Events Centre we completed essential remedial works addressing fire safety, compliance matters, and roofing repairs.
- We introduced a kerbside collection for organic waste.
- Activity started on the review of our outdated District Plan.
- We completed projects funded from the government’s Stimulus Funding and the Department of Internal Affairs Tranche 1 Three Waters Funding including: preliminary design for the Fairlie Water Treatment plant, water pipe replacement in Twizel, Lake Tekapo/Takapō and Fairlie, Rural Water Safety Plans.
