Environment Southland councillors today agreed to contribute $250,000 as part of a regional funding package of $650,000 to enable the removal of ouvea premix from four sites in Southland.
Chairman Nicol Horrell said while Environment Southland has no statutory obligations in regard to the storage of the materials, councillors recognised they had an important role in the solution.
“This is an issue the community feels strongly about, there is a lot of concern and we are prepared to play our part in the resolution.”
The $250,000 will be funded from reserves.
