The Levin Borough Council had its first meeting Wednesday the 2nd May 1906 and its last meeting in 1989 when it was superseded the Horowhenua District Council.

The first meeting of the Levin Borough Council was held on Wednesday the 2nd May 1906 at 2 o’clock p.m. in Messrs Hudson & Easther’s Chambers, Queen Street.

According to the minutes which were hand-written into a leather-bound minute book (which the Council still has):

‘The Returning Officer (P.W. Goldsmith) presided and read from the N.Z. Gazette the order-in-Council constituting Levin a Borough, & authorising the election of the present Council.

‘The Mayor-elect Mr Basil Robertson Gardener then made the statutory declaration and took his seat amidst applause.’

The following Councillors made their respective declarations:-
·    Hugh Hall
·    Mr G. Hawkins
·    Mr A.B. Hudson
·    James Prouse
·    E.F. Levy
·    H. Dundas Mackenzie
·    Chas. H.L. Palmer
·    Richard Prouse
·    John Ryder.


The minutes from the first minute book have been typed up by volunteers for inclusion in Kete Horowhenua - while some of the original pages have been scanned into PDF files.
