Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper supersedes Supplementary Order Paper No 178, dated 20 February 2013. The issue of the status of this public asset affects more than just those properties within the water scheme distribution zone because the South Taranaki District Council has provided ratepayer funding and administrative support for the scheme over many years, and because residents of Opunake rely on the scheme to supplement their water supply in an emergency. A referendum on the Cold Creek Rural Water Supply should therefore be open to all eligible residents and ratepayers on the South Taranaki District electoral roll. This Supplementary Order Paper amends the bill to achieve this.
