Kin and Co Application 19 February 2017 Sale and Supply of Alcohol 2012 Free Desexing for Menacing Dogs 17 February 2017 Free desexing and microchipping of dogs classified as menacing is being offered by New Plymouth District Council. The initiative is part of the Government’s national strategy to reduce the risk and harm of dog attacks. The funding is a good opportunity for owners of menacing dogs to have their pets neutered or spayed for free before a possible law change makes desexing mandatory, says NPDC Manager Customer and Regulatory Services Katrina Brunton. “Currently only dogs classified as dangerous must be desexed but it’s likely the law will be changed later this year to include menacing dogs,” she says. “Under this initiative, we have Government funding to pay for neutering or spaying and the dogs’ after-care, and the Council will pay for microchipping the animals. “We’ll be improving safety in the community by reducing the risk posed by menacing dogs and removing the price-barrier for their owners.” The Council is contacting all owners of menacing dogs in the district to advise them on how to be part of the initiative, which is being coordinated with the New Plymouth SPCA and Vets4Pets. After each dog’s operation, an Animal Control Officer will follow up with the owner about dog safety, risk minimisation, housing, fencing and safe exercise. “The Council has an ongoing focus on education and risk prevention with animals, and this free desexing programme is another part of that service for dog owners and the general public,” says Ms Brunton. The district has nearly 160 dogs classified as menacing that are not desexed.

Appointment Made to Audit and Risk Committee 16 February 2017 An appointee to New Plymouth District Council’s Audit and Risk Committee brings with her significant experience and expertise from large public agencies. Committee Chairman Richard Handley says Adrienne Young-Cooper’s appointment reflects the maturing of risk management in New Zealand and the seriousness that the Council places on it. “We’re delighted we’ve been able to attract an independent member of such experience and capability,” says Councillor Handley. “Adrienne will provide an external perspective to our decision-making in this critically important area, particularly given our focus to retain the Council’s AA/A-1 rating with Standard and Poor’s – the highest rating possible for local government in New Zealand.” Ms Young-Cooper is a Chartered Fellow – the most senior status available – of the Institute of Directors. Her background includes directorships of some of New Zealand’s significant companies. She is currently a board member of the NZ Transport Agency, Chair of Housing New Zealand Corporation, and Director of HLC (Hobsonville Land Company Limited) and Wairaka Land Company Limited.  The Audit and Risk Committee makes recommendations to the Council on NPDC’s internal control framework and financial management practices, internal and external reporting and accountability arrangements, and risk management systems, processes and practices.
