Today Waikato District Council confirmed its commitment to a ratepayer-owned, council controlled organisation (CCO) to manage water and wastewater on behalf of the Hamilton City, Waikato and Waipa District Councils. 

Prior to the October local government elections, all three councils had already agreed to support forming an asset-owning CCO, subject to public consultation.  That agreement was to be confirmed once new councils had been elected.

Waipa District Council and Hamilton City Council are expected to reconsider their support for the CCO proposal over the coming weeks.
