Much of the work of WLASS is undertaken by working parties or advisory groups made up of staff representatives from the shareholding councils who have expertise and interest in particular services.
Costs to be involved
Member councils pay a small annual levy, depending on their size. Services obtained are funded on a user pays basis – each council pays for and receives the financial benefits of its share of any particular service.
Board of Directors
The WLASS Board has six directors – an independent Chair and council representatives appointed by:
– Hamilton City Council
– Waikato Regional Council
– Central Waikato (representing Waikato and Waipa District Councils)
– East Waikato (representing Hauraki, Matamata-Piako and Thames-Coromandel District Councils)
– South Waikato (representing Otorohanga, Rotorua, South Waikato, Taupo and Waitomo District Councils)
The Board publishes a Statement of Intent in June and holds an Annual General Meeting in November each year. The accounts are audited annually by Audit New Zealand, and the Annual Report is generally published in August.
