WATER QUALITY is shaping as a contentious election
issue in the Malvern ward of the Selwyn District Council.
Four candidates are chasing two Malvern ward positions
on the council table. Incumbent councillor Sam Broughton
ranks water as the most important issue for the ward.
A number of water supplies have difficulty providing
safe drinking water at quantities required for new growth.''
Roading is another important issue for the ward, he said.
The government has reduced its help to maintain our
roads and there will be pressure to increase our rates to
cover this shortfall. In the meantime our sealed and gravel
roads get worse.''
Another incumbent councillor, John Morten, said main-
tenance of roading, supply and quality of water and afford-
able reticulated sewerage are major issues affecting Mal-
vern -- along with ensuring support for our changing
Bob Mugford said the biggest problem that we have in
some of our towns is maintaining a constant safe water
supply''. Another problem for the new council will be the
maintenance of roads, especially in rural areas, he said.
Bill Woods said volunteers of the community committees
are most important.
They need to be encouraged and supported. At the
moment they feel ignored or treated with contempt for
criticising the performance of council.''
Hawkins subdivison: Only three nominations -- Jenny
Gallagher, Mary Ireland and Judith Pascoe -- were
received for the three positions representing the Hawera
subdivision on the Malvern Community Board.
