1) Meant to name Levin Taitoko,
Under the earliest conditions governing the sale of the Levin Block to the Government, the name of the settlement was to have been Taitoko. It was intended that a garden or park of 100 acres be one of the features of the new town.
2) Borough Councils down the years
A total of 89 citizens have served on the Levin Borough Council in the course of its 50 years. There has only been one woman on the council, Mrs. H.E. Bowen, who served 12 1/2 years from May 1935 to November, 1947, when she retired. There have been 10 mayors and five town clerks.
