COVID-19 UPDATE: Use of Council Chambers by the public is not available at this time.
Council Chambers are located in the Taumarunui, Ohakune and Raetihi Council Buildings.
Outside organisations are permitted to use the Council Chamber and peripheral
rooms (when not required for Council business) for community-related purposes where, in the opinion of the Chief Executive, the organisation or event is suitable. Alcohol is not permitted (except with the express approval of the Chief Executive or delegate). Chambers are not available for use for 21st Birthday or Engagement Parties and the like. A refundable Bond will be charged to all non-Council users.
Taumarunui and Ohakune Chambers have data projectors and screens available for use included in the room hire. Note that the projector in the Taumarunui Council Chamber is rear-mounted and laser pointers do not usually work on it. The Ohakune Council Chamber projector is not rear mounted.
PowerPoint, video and other digital presentation material
USB sticks cannot be used on Council devices due to the risk of virus transfer. PowerPoint, video or other digital presentations must therefore be delivered or emailed to Council at least two days before the meeting. This is to allow time for the data to be virus-checked and loaded onto Council's computer system, ready for use.
For further information on hiring one of the available Council Chambers contact Council.
