Sound equipment grant received
17 June 2015
KAWERAU District Council has been awarded a $30,595 grant to fund a new sound system and hearing loops in the Kawerau Town Hall and Concert Chambers.
The council agreed to upgrade the equipment in October last year, but purchasing and installation was delayed until an application for funding was made to the Eastern Bay Energy Trust.
Operations and services manager Tom McDowall told the regulatory and services committee about the grant on Tuesday.
He said the equipment would be purchased and installed this month.
