Whakataka te hau ki te uru                 Cease o winds from the west

Whakataka te hau ki te tonga             Cease o winds from the south

Kia mākinakina ki uta                          Bring calm breezes over the land

Kia mātaratara ki tai                            Bring calm breezes over the sea

E hī ake ana te atakura                      And let the red-tipped dawn come

He tio                                                   With a touch of frost

He huka                                              A sharpened air

He hau hū                                           And promise of a glorious day.

Tīhei mauri ora

 

2          Apologies

 

At the close of the agenda no apologies had been received.

 

3          Declaration of Interest

 

Members are reminded of the need to be vigilant to stand aside from decision making

When a conflict arises between their role as a member and any private or other external

interest they might have.

 

The Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members (the Code) requires elected

members to fully acquaint themselves with, and strictly adhere to, the provisions of

Auckland Council’s Conflicts of Interest Policy. The policy covers two classes of conflict of

interest:

 

i.      A financial conflict of interest, which is one where a decision or act of the local board could reasonably give rise to an expectation of financial gain or loss to an elected member.

ii.     A non-financial conflict interest, which does not have a direct personal financial component. It may arise, for example, from a personal relationship, or involvement with a non-profit organisation, or from conduct that indicates prejudice or predetermination.

 

The Office of the Auditor General has produced guidelines to help elected members

understand the requirements of the Local Authority (Member’s Interest) Act 1968. The

guidelines discuss both types of conflicts in more detail and provide elected members with

practical examples and advice around when they may (or may not) have a conflict of        interest.

 

Copies of both the Auckland Council Code of Conduct for Elected Members and the Office

of the Auditor General guidelines are available for inspection by members upon request.

Any questions relating to the Code or the guidelines may be directed to the Local Area Manager in the first instance.
