Referendum '06 is your opportunity to have a real influence on some major issues that have been facing
our Wanganui community for some time. The Wanganui District Council resolved to seek your input by
way of referendum.

The issues for Referendum '06 are all outlined below, providing both sides of the argument and, where
appropriate, the associated costs. Public meetings will be held early next year and advocates for and
against each of the issues will be invited to speak. These meetings will be notified in your local newspaper.

One person, one vote.

All Wanganui ratepayers and residents who are on the electoral roll can vote in the referendum. Voting
papers for the referendum and the by-election will be delivered to your letterbox in the week from 20 January 2006. Each issue requires a simple vote FOR or AGAINST, then return your voting paper in the envelope provided. If you spoil your voting paper and need a replacement, contact Customer Services on 349-0001, or email wdc@wanganui.govt.nz. Please note that photocopies will not be accepted.

Voting closes at 12 noon on Saturday, 11 February 2006
