DCC heads to marae

The Dunedin City Council will hold Monday's full council meeting at the Otakou marae, and a meeting on Wednesday in the city.

Under the Local Government Act 2002, the council must provide opportunities for Maori to participate in local government.

Council communications co-ordinator Rodney Bryant said items on the agenda for discussion at Monday's meeting included a draft Pukekura reserves management plan, Maori participation processes, Kai Tahu engagement with the council and the relationship between the rununga and the council.

Mr Bryant said the rest of the council's business would be completed on Wednesday.
