THE TRRA IS DEAD - LONG LIVE THE TRRA
Last night at the Titirangi Presbyterian Church Hall a little piece of history came to an end and another began. Members
of the Titirangi Ratepayers and Residents Association unanimously agreed to wrap up their organisation and incorporate a
new one - and so the Titirangi Residents and Ratepayers Association Incorporated was born.
Chair Mels Barton explained to the meeting that the Titirangi Ratepayers and Residents Association had been struck off
the Incorporated Societies Register in 2013 due to not filing accounts when they had a fill-in Treasurer who left the
area. “This isn’t a problem unless you want to apply for funding and we have some projects we’d like to pursue that need
a bit of cash and so it would be great to become an Incorporated Society again” she explained.
The meeting also agreed to adopt new Rules which include all the changes and updates required by the draft Incorporated
Societies Bill released last week. “We are future-proofing the Rules as the new Bill requires a lot of changes, some of
which are quite onerous for small organisations, and all Incorporated Societies will need to do this at some point, so
we thought we would do it now” Mels said.
“In line with the old Rules we will be holding a final General Meeting of the Titirangi Ratepayers and Residents
Association to complete wrapping up the organisation on Weds 16 December 2015, 7pm at the Presland residence 512 South
Titirangi Rd. All members are welcome to please BYO for a BBQ and celebrate the end of one era and the beginning of
another with us” Mels said.
