Council Staff


Our whānau is a team of 60 passionate people with a commitment to each other and to our community to be kind, innovative and accountable. We are all genuinely dedicated to providing the highest level of service to the people of the Ōtorohanga District.

Within the team, we have some people who have been in local government for many years, and we also have people who are brand new to the sector, bringing with them skills and expertise that transfer nicely into local government.

This mix of old hands and new blood has us well positioned to be able to deliver what our community needs now and into the future.

Ōtorohanga District Council is such a diverse place to work, where every day is different, bringing with it new challenges and new opportunities. 

We really do think we are THE best small rural council in New Zealand!
